The Opening Gambit

Hello and welcome to!

This blog will detail and discuss various matters related to planning and planning enforcement as I can/am interested in.  I’ll also touch on other areas that interest me, for example confiscation proceedings and how these can be used successfully to extend or enhance the reach of planning enforcement.  Or how other aspects of criminal law can be used to extend the limits of planning enforcement. Or when a dwellinghouse is not a dwellinghouse.  Or what I think the pros and cons of the Brentwood Bruiser’s next brilliant idea(s) might be.  Or anything, really.

Sometimes maybe even the odd special feature on favourite biscuits at Inquiry.
