[NOV 05 – DEC 06]

Material from the earlier version of this blog, covering the first 14 months (from November 2005 to December 2006) can be accessed at http://planningmatter.blogspot.com/

This is not a link, but you can block it and copy it [CTRL + C], then paste it into the address strap at the top of the home page of your internet browser [CTRL + V], and click on the 'Go' button.

When the page opens, you can scroll down the right-hand column until you come to the monthly archives for each of those 14 months. Be warned, though, that those posts (unlike the archived material on this site) have not been updated; so they may not represent the current state of the law, and should therefore be treated with a degree of caution.
