I think there is a north-south divide of the town: on one side you have a developer wanting to build 15 homes in Green Drift and Cllr F John Smith saying: "It's not in keeping with the area."
But on the north side we have Johnson Matthey building a grotesque block which towers over residential property - and it wants to build another one.
