A story recently posted on express.co.uk highlighted what would appear to many to be a classic bureaucratic Catch 22.
For many years, Gordon Channer had allowed local children to play on a field that he owned in Cornwall. But when he tried to renew his public liability insurance, he was told by the insurers that he had to level out a part of the land to make it safe. However, as soon as he started to have the work carried out, he was told that he needed planning permission from Penwith District Council. And when he applied for that – you’ve guessed it – he was turned down.
Some would say you couldn’t make it up!
