Chatteris: Police liaison officer told Fenland Council what applicant told him

REGARDING your story last week about Fenland District Council’s refusal of planning permission to change the use of a home in Chatteris into a care leavers’ home.

A police force architectural liaison officer told the council: “A more structured community, providing facilities and accommodation to assist young adults with the knowledge and capacity to go out into society as a valued member, would decrease calls to the emergency services.”

It sounds like he’s just repeating what the applicant has told him, but a probably personal opinion has been presented to committee as being a professional one.
