ViewpointsI'm not sorry for my views.

I am sorry that Phillip Bear from Cowbridge (Viewpoints November 22) has wasted so much effort attacking my view on planning permission.

I happen to live in a part of Cardiff where developers and business take greater priority than the views of the public. As an AM, I am unapologetic about my views on the planning system and no doubt many people would agree with the view I have expressed.

The Tesco proposal for Birchgrove Road was used as an example to show the madness of merely transferring permission without any ability to consider the huge difference in impact that the change of owner would have created.

The impact of a Tesco shop would have been fundamentally different, it is this aspect that needs to be addressed. The process of planning permission does not exist to boost the value of land or property, it is there to ensure proper consideration of the development.
