U+I was promoting a logistics scheme on the edge of the Green Belt, which faced considerable opposition from nearby residents and was in the ward of the Council Leader.

DI managed all political and community relations, including organising the pre-application consultation, briefing senior councillors and manning a dedicated phone line and email address for local residents.

The extent of local consultation and the volume of supporting representations were both highlighted during the committee discussion.

The planning committee voted to consent the scheme by 6 votes to 3.
