ABUSES OF PROCESS
Some involve enforcement officers skipping over due processes such as ensuring that a member of the public gets his Article 6 right to a fair hearing.
Others abuses involve planning officers doing favours for developers in not informing members of the public about impending planning applications - so denying them their right to make representations to councillors at committee meetings.
One way of trying to push a planning application through is not to tell anyone about it. Once passed, there is no right of appeal to the Secretary of State. The only way to challenge any Abuse of Process, would then be by Judicial Review - and not many people could afford the legal fees attaching to such a process - that is in effect the preserve of the rich.
Where the law is
only available to the rich, that is an Article 14 violation and a system
that Queen Victoria would
not be amused about.
