  1. So Gladman and co believe council planners are right when they approve applications but wrong when they write a 5 year plan – surprise, surprise,

  2. Their statement on their website is illuminating, looks like they only take on sites that they have confidence in gaining planning permission for (http://www.gladman.co.uk/land/):- ‘Gladman don’t take an option on your land – instead we agree to promote your site now. Gladman pay all costs (fees, consultants,barristers, etc) needed to achieve planning consent including appeal costs when necessary – £300,000+ for a typical site. Gladman only get paid once the site has planning consent and is sold – our motivation to succeed is clear.’
    ….If Jodrell Bank are concerned then they will need to provide a robust defence!!
