Why approved?

Referring to Terry McCann’s letter in last week’s Herald, he quite rightly points out the struggle Councillor Roberts had with 2,246 named petition against beach chalets being turned into artist studios.

I presume so did all the other councillors present.

None of them could equate that 200 people on the waiting list for a beach chalet against 60 artists wanting them. This point alone should tell the cabinet members the resident of East Worthing do not want a Benidorm Beach.

Why was it approved against statistics?
