I just finished a report today that is 15 pages long. One page for Recommendations and two pages for planning analysis. The remaining 12 pages were background information, one photo and three maps. If I didn't have to include comments for departments and agencies and excerpts from the Official Plan and Zoning By-law, the report would have been about 7 pages long.
In my experience, a two page analysis tends to get lost in a 15 page report. Will someone explain to me why my managers insist on including unnecessary background information?
Madness. Utter madness.
