What Does a Property Developer Secretly Buy for £400,000?

Durham Green Developments Limited had a planning application for a business park development alongside the A1 motorway blocked by the Department of Transport.

In October last year the objection to the massive development was dropped by the Department of Transport. What a coincidence…

UPDATE : BBC reporting that Labour’s general secretary Peter Watt has resigned.

“Mr Watt told a meeting of officers of Labour’s National Executive Committee that he had known about the arrangement.”

So who else knew? Douglas Alexander was the Minister responsible for the planning objection…
