New report slams developers' attempts to hoodwink public about true size & impact of Haven development
A new report submitted to Poole Council by planning consultant Mike Hirsch and prepared by architects on behalf of objectors condemns current Haven plans as "invalid".
The report is a detailed professional critique of the vast number of misleading drawings, errors and inaccuracies contained in the developers' plans.
