Danger - Deep Excavations

danger sign

Today Scarlett, Aurelie and I went to a picnic in Regents Park in London with my cousins to say farewell to cousin Ruth who left the UK this evening to take up a position at the Constitutional Court in South Africa.  My (video) camera was “stolen” and I nearly had a heart-attack - then realised it was a practical joke. Unfortunately Scarlett had a singing lesson scheduled, so we left early (at something to four in the afternoon).

I noticed earlier that the Tandridge District Council Interactive (sic) website came back up today, and the details of the contraversial planning application can now be viewed here.  I have started writing my objection, which I will email to the Council by the deadline. 

Go and see too what kipperfrog has to say on this.

One thing other thing: The Tandridge District Council website is a veritable maze of text, which is not particularly easy to navigate. While it is well laid out, and reasonably comprehensive, you seem to have to “click” just too many times to get to the information you are looking for. This is both when “drilling down” to pages with greater detail, and when moving across “horizantally” (to related information). Judging by their published webstats they are pretty well used, so they shouldn’t be complacent. When I first went to the site today they asked me to participate in a user survey to evaluate their site. I closed the pop-up window. Afterwards I wished they had asked me for feedback once I had made some use of the site ... (Actually there is a link on their homepage to the survey, so I may just fill it in when I have some time!).
