    It is not necessarily policies that are wrong, it is the planning dept interpretation and the way this is being done that needs looking into. It appears as though they decide to fail an application and then try and interpret a policy to make sure it fails as opposed to looking at an application with an open mind no matter whose it is. People need to speak out publically about their experiences otherwise the council will get away with it. The system needs to be made fair for all. There is too much back scratching going on amongst planning dept and the councilors and others. Which why we get decisions that nobody can understand or be justified. From what I hearing there are plenty of people with similar experiences.

    I don't think it is just business applications either it is house holder applications eg" monster house Lerwick" this house appears too big for the size of plot - does the owner not work for the council?

    So perhaps their face fitted with the right name of course (wink)?

    Maybe depends on your name and who is wanting the planning permission as to why some people seem to have problems getting permission whilst others do not ?

    Surely that would go for any firm that delivers ?

    When is a settlement NOT a settlement ? - when the council do not want it to be is the answer, good luck Mr McColl

    The decision should not be made on Shetland - too much local politics at play. If Henry is to get a fair hearing a decision needs to be made outwith Shetland. Too many fingers in the pies pardon the pun. sure this is not the first and will not be the last time SIC planning dept act with such a distorted view on things to supress certain planning applications. It would be interesting to see how many others have had such similar problems

    The planners have refused planning permission, and Henry is going for an appeal - The Review Body. I wonder how biased that is going to be, no doubt local politics will come into their decision, will he get a fair shot ?? Good luck, I'm sure you will have a lot of support locally.

    Are you saying we need a public enquiry into the "goings on" in SIC planning dept?
  10. But for something like glace cherries there is no alternative on the shelf by another brand say or something close or similar even.

    Anyone heard how his planning application getting on, a decision was due wasn't it , I hope he gets his permission.
  12. I agree they are limiting choice , there is no glace cherries or mixed peel for baking something that you would normally expect to see on the shelves and especially this time of year.
  13. However I have seen a small box of tinsel at one end of an isle late this afternoon but you would think popular products would be topped up.
  14. Its not the fact xmas would be ruined without tinsel don't be silly, its the fact these sort of products sell at xmas time and are what customers would require along with other products xmas or otherwise in weeks up to xmas. Tesco have also put some Halloween or valentine stuff out after the event, it should have been on the shelves unless of course some boat delay but if stock is out the back get it on the shelves. Pringles is popular product you expect to see this product on the shelves decision to stop something that is popular doesn't make sense. If Tesco stop selling beer just before up helly aa say, would customers not think that was strange and that would not make economic sense for Tesco. Its about stopping of certain popular products, not that just for one year you couldn't get hold of it.
  15. The store manager really needs to sort his staff and managers out, and get on the shop floor and take some control, this did not happen to the same degree with old store manager it is just getting worse. Its nearly xmas and no tinsel.
  16. I think other local primaries have drop in roll including Sandwick primary that has lost quite a lot of children.
  17. They might have gone with it, and pulled through strings to get it passed depending on who it was.
  18. Is this a possible reason why Planning do not want Parkgate Pizza restaurant near Voe, suggesting perhaps he could use Osla's, as the Lerwick folk can walk to that and he would be using what would become an empty shop in Lerwick ?
  19. Surely Planning departments are there to pass applications where possible, NOT to fail planning applications if they can.
  20. What is the" sign up" for supporting the restaurant or vote of no confidence in planning dept /council ?

    I don't think the actual policies are the problem. It's taking an application looking at it properly and looking at the policy and then interpret it with common sense applied along side , not taking every policy to its extreme, to make it fit every application the planners don't happen to like or want. Therefore making it easy to fail some applications and pass others, there lies the problem.

    If climate change is the excuse to stop the restaurant from opening then every development as soon as you use concrete should fail. Concrete is not environmentally friendly so how far do the planners want to interpret the policies ?
  23. We need more smart classy restaurants to open up to give choice, the choice is very limited in Shetland, where the food and surroundings inside and out are to a high standard. I really hope he pushes this all the way, it is what Shetland needs along with some smarter pubs/bars that also serve quality meals.
  24. What happens now a Full Committee, and is that like the Review body?
  25. Difficult one, a new system would not necessarily stop local politics at play.
