EAST GRINSTEAD Urban Council Planning Committee heard that well over 500 letters had had to be sent out to say that the inquiry into the appeal by the Church of Scientology, East Grinstead, against the Council's refusal to allow large-scale development at Saint Hill, had been postponed.

The inquiry has been postponed by the Ministry because of the indisposition of Mr. Howard Sharp, who is representing the appellants.

The new date for the inquiry is July 16.

Labour councillor Mrs. C. E. Mead told the committee that she thought it 'monstrous' that the indisposition of one person could disrupt so many arrangements on the part of so many people.

It was pointed out to her that it was usual in all appeals for the Ministry to lean heavily in favour of the appellants.
