The Daily Telegraph (January 11, p4) reported the story of a dentist in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, who asked permission to erect a business plaque on the outside of his new business.

The town council had no objections, but North Wiltshire DC decided that it could not grant planning permission, after councillors visited the building for a site meeting and after what the paper describes as months of discussion.

A North Wiltshire DC spokesman told the paper: 'The plaque has been turned down because it is considered too big for the listed building to which it would have been affixed.

He said that despite the time taken with meetings, correspondence and officers' time the decision had been reached at 'minimal cost'.
