Department for Communities and Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles has ruled himself out when it comes to making the decision about whether to approve the controversial decision by Medway Council to allow the Lodge Hill & Chattenden SSSI to be concreted over.

Mr Pickles has passed the hot potato to one of the junior ministers in his department because he is a bird lover and a member of the RSPB.
