I AM yet again confused by our wonderful council. I recently read that Mr Sheerman was not happy that Tesco had obtained a premium site and was questioning the council’s decision.

We are told that the ever exorbitant wages paid to the council staff have to be paid to obtain (“The Best”) people. How come that we are using the services of a company who study this type of planning application for “free” when we have “The Best” already on our council. Are they responsible for anything? Or is it another case of “pass the Buck” if all doesn’t go to plan. When I worked I had to make decisions and stand by them right or wrong. Oh how I wish I could have worked for Kirklees. Great wages and NO responsibility.
