How does a planning inquiry make you feel? Walter Inglis told us his emotional roller coaster ride through the planning system. We present his story that he told at our AGM.

This is a MUST read for politicians planners and anyone who wants the system of planning to be inclusive and fair. It tells the story of why a “regular guy” got involved in his community council, his learning curve, his attempts to engage with planning processes and ultimately how it left him feeling exhausted, disillusioned and frustrated.

It is a MUST read for all Reporters and lawyers involved with Public Local Inquiries. It is an insight into how people feel prior during and after a planning inquiry, the emotional toll it takes and how it affects people’s personal lives.

“Walter’s presentation opened my eyes to a number of problems Community Groups face in conducting what to me is all in a day’s work” David Cobb, Advocate
