Robert Lovell is an Inspector at Sussex Police. He has been asked to look at malfeasance in public office at the Wealden District Council. A number of officers of this council, past and present, are alleged to have committed perjury, or providing false or misleading evidence to planning Inspectors and even High Court Judges.
The frequency of the events alleged is suggestive of an ingrained agenda that operates to keep planning consents out of the reach of certain residents, to the benefit of other better connected concerns. The operations of this council are alleged to amount to a course of malicious conduct or even fraud, as defined by the Fraud Act 2006.
Even more worrying is whether or not the Sussex Police is party to these allegations of serious crimes. It would be a feather in any police officer's career if he or she uncovered corrupt practices at a higher level and was brave enough to expose those cover-ups.

A £9,000 bird bath has been stolen from a garden.
MISFEASANCE & MALFEASANCE
When an officer of the courts omits to include evidence that he knows is relevant to a hearing, that is termed misfeasance in public office. Where an officer then tries to cover up his or her misfeasance (as did Ian Kay in the Stream Farm matter), that becomes malfeasance. The difference is that misfeasance is a civil wrong, whereas malfeasance is a criminal offence. The leading case precedent on malfeasance is: R. v Bowden 1995 Court of Appeal (98 1 WLR).
