New docklands development

Planning department are an absolute jokeshop. They do nothing only contribute to homelessness. They don't take phonecalls or call anyone back. They take months to meet anybody, or approve/reject the most simple of planning applications. No logic in their decision making. If they were working for a private company they wouldn't last 5 minutes before being shown the door. Why is it just because people work in public admin they are automatically entitled, arrogant, unprofessional and ridiculously low on productivity?

Crazy talk?

Answer a phone or respond to an e-mail?

They all live out in the suburbs and do not have a single clue as they are oblivious to dereliction and poor planning all around them.

As a pure example of the type we have one here all day every bloody day and that is ScumMan.

Another one of them
 
Converted concrete soil building in cape town where the sculpted out the insides of the silos - one of the coolest things you'll ever see. Developed as a hotel/art museum - why not with a bit of imagination?

I don't mind the planners asking that certain structures are retained.. soon the docks will have no sense of what used be there if we done keep some of it.. what I hate is them making developers keep some small shitty bit of a building like they did on Albert Quay while the new building engulfs it and makes the entire thing utterly pointless. The one on Lavitts Quay next to the Opera house is even worse again
