Refuse additional time for granted applications.

No resident should have to go through the process I have been through. Despite objections from all the local residents to a proposal to build flats which will overshadow my home and with no consultation the application has been extended THREE times.

The ball is always in the court of the developer. Ordinary residents with limited funds feel totally powerless. This has to stop. Peoples lives are being ruined.
