Prime Minister not Allowed to go Solar
We recently reported that
future Prime Minister leader of the opposition, David Cameron, ran into trouble with the authorities over the wind turbine he installed at his London home. Now there's news which shows current PM's have just as much trouble with planning applications as potential future PM's.
Tony Blair submitted an application to install solar panels and CCTV on his £3.5 million home, which has been rejected after complaints from neighbors. Perhaps he could buy the whole street, so there would be no objection. He already owns an adjoining £800,000 house which he plans to use as an office.
It's a shame that people are stopped from installing solar cells or wind turbines just because a neighbor complains. One can only hope that now Tony and David have been personally touched by this bureaucracy, new legislation will be brought in to make this kind of thing easier. :: The Guardian
