Another letter you may find interesting Yetion1! Like I mentioned in my last post, demolition seems to have stopped again and all they have been doing for the last few weeks is tidying up! Someone asked one of the demolition men today when Jack's house was being knocked down, to which his reply was "When we get told to"! They have put a bit more fence around it but that didn't stop someone going in today (2nd April). Where's these "robust arrangements" as stated?

Update to my last post! There has been no one working at all today on Girnhill, the digger hasn't moved one bit! The driver did call up in his car I noticed, but that's all he did! Is that it then I wonder? Why don't they just hurry up and get them all demolished instead of farting about!

A NEWS ARTICLE FROM THE YORKSHIRE POST 28TH SEPTEMBER 2006

This lady (along with others) was in the same boat we are in now and a high court judge ruled the "CPO" was not justified and constitutes a breach of the human rights act!

INTERESTING READING DON'T YA THINK WMDC?

Isn't it just? A lot of very interesting things in that article  Grin

I have just found out some information regarding the burnt out house (Jack's house). Apparantly they cannot demolish it now until the end of May / June because a blue tit has started to nest in it! (I've been told somewhere near the alarm box on the outside)

our new friend from WMDC highways has been to see me today. he has made repeated visits to the estate and also has not been able to find any workmen or more mess. he didny leave it there. he has tracked the demolishion men down to another site and given them a warning there about the roads left on Girnhill. his best bit of info is that the contractors said that they had only 2 more houses to knock down? my question is when will they start again?
apparently i have a full written report arriving soon. i will let you know.

WMDC were given a deadline of April 1st to remove all the empty pairs of houses before birds started nesting, due to their bad managing skills this deadline has now passed and no more demolition can take place until an independent wildlife expert inspects the roof space for birds and bats. If any wildlife are found then it is illegal to demolish the property until the wildlife have left or have been killed by the arson attacks

Yes i have also noticed the sign has gone, when i last read the sign it stated that there was around 12-14 houses to come down so far only 6 have gone and there stopping i ask why. What happened to knocking the houses down on Ashcroft Road as it was stated, why are the council pushing it back all the time, i've noticed its not taking as much time to knock crystal drinks down as it is the empty houses on Girnhill.

Well as I type this, there is 2 men from the demolition firm loading the digger onto the back of a low loader which does indeed confirm, demolition has once again stopped! Read my letter from an earlier post about what was happening to the remaining empty houses on the estate! I REST MY CASE!

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THESE SO CALLED "CHOICES" WE WERE GOING TO BE OFFERED IN 2005?
OPTION 2 TALKS ABOUT REINSTATING SOME HOUSES (WHY NOT DO THAT TO THEM ALL IN THE 1ST PLACE?)
OPTION 3 IS CALLED "RESIDENTS FIRST PREFERENCE" HA HA THAT'S A LAUGH (REINSTATION MENTIONED AGAIN)

FUNNY THING WAS JANETS OFFICE HAD THE SAME BET AS I THAT HAWTHORN WOULD BE BROKEN INTO WITHIN 24 HOURS. THEY BLOODY KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING.
