Below is a copy of a comment I left on Jason Weyman’s blog in response to Councillor Lyons report in the paper about County By-laws

Correct me if I am wrong but it would appear that Councillor Lyons has wilfully mislead the media on these issues, or, at least, she has been negligent in stating her misinterpretation of the facts. In your opinion, is that correct?.
The reasoning behind my question is that Councillor Lyons appears to be making quite a few mistakes, deliberately or otherwise, her installation of Upvc windows in a listed building, for example, still remains unsolved despite her claims in December last year that she would rectify her “mistake”. In addition she also installed shutters to one of her commercial premises, is that not against planning laws?.
It is difficult enough having to explain to people why certain planning applications are turned down and this problem is only added to when Councillors themselves flaunt the rules.
In my opinion, you may agree or disagree, Cllr Lyons should have an Enforcement Order made against her in respect of the windows and shutters and she should be forced to make a public apology to the Council for misleading the media and, therefore, the public in her wrongful appraisal of the County By-laws.
