Anne Seex only relied on a plan view when determining Trevor's complaint and refused to even acknowledge the importance of, let alone take into account, a cross sectional view. When you consider that this is an essential and key piece of evidence it leaves one feeling that the Ombudsmen had some ulterior motive for not investigating Trevor's complaint properly.
Unfortunately, if like the Ombudsman and the house buyers in my previous post Plan view V cross section view , you are given only a two dimensional plan view without being given a third dimensional cross sectional view you can misled into believing that a plan is workable when in reality it's nothing but an illusion.
I was originally concerned that the Ombudsman had allowed themselves to be taken in by such a deception but when you also take into account that they didn't bother, even when prompted by Trevor, to take the necessary and prudent step of validating Cheshire County Council's illusionary plans with a cross sectional view you are left with the uneasy feeling that the Ombudsman wasn't interested in the truth. And that is an altogether more serious charge that Local Government Ombudsman will need to address at some point in the future!
