Mr Salter tells us, as I reminded readers inthe previous post, that he has been campaigning against development on the Bath Road reservoir site since 1996. Maybe. Good to see him change his tune from "always" to "since 1996". Though I don't remember him campaigning on this site in 1996. He stood down from the council that year, ahead of a corruption scandal. Between 1992, after the Cross Town Route public inquiry, and 1996, he was one of a small group of politically motivated men (and one woman, yours truly), who worked on the Borough Plan, to ensure that its political direction was correct. This was done under the direction of Dictatorship Dave Sutton. Salter was not only responsible for the allocation of the site for housing, as deputy leader of the council, but was actively involved and hands on in the specifics of allocation of sites for housing. So was I, and I had and have no difficulty with housing development on that site.
Both ways at once.
