Guess what? Looks like it's going to be developed into yet MORE flats.

Anything but flats, note certain words in the article "No parking spaces". Just about sums it up that does. Another planning permission RBC can't say "NO" to.

Here's the link for those who haven't seen it.

You mean the derelict former pub that backs onto flats (beeen there since the 70's) and has flats opposite?
Good idea.
You're correct in that RBC didn't say "NO" as they couldn't

Perhaps a sculpture like this - the gateway to the Oxford Road. ;-)

Yep. I don't care if it's just derelict. Just STOP building all these flats.

Why, are they being held at knifepoint or something? What's the point of planning permissions if they are "told" what to say?

Planning authorities have to act in accordance with their planning guidelines and planning laws. If they refuse permission developers can seek to overturn the decision in court and local authorities have the cost of legal representation to defend the claim and the possibility of having to also pay for the barristers employed by the developer if the claim succeeds.

You need to complain to the government rather than local councils if you feel the law needs changing.
