Since Jacks house burnt I started complaining about it being boarded up. The excuse given was that they could not board it up as the chimney was unsafe. Yes it is unsafe and could fall on the poor buggar living next door.
After the meeting at Chesneys it was left clear that
1.   security patrols were in place
2.   weekly checks would be made on all the homes
3.   any unsafe property would be made safe

Since the meeting I and Roy have contacted Janet Howleys department and complained the 3 things had not been done. Still no response this week. Yesterday I had a rant.
9.00PM today Janet called me and gave me the same excuses her colleagues had given. A further excuse was that the demolition men were busy and would get to Jacks soon. Not good enough was my reply as the demolition men had spent most of the last 2 days playing with the kids and generally just tidying up. Janet disagreed with this and stated she had been on site and the work men were working. My reply was would she like the pictures I had taken over the afternoon?

WHOS LIEING JANNET?

It’s Friday and still no boarding up. Janet, im coming on Monday, get ready!

As if things weren't bad enough on the estate, take a look at these pictures! This is how the demolition people are leaving the street after a days work! You have to see it to believe it!
my question is has anyone reported this mess? if so to who. this is an un safe highway. >:(

Thanks to Mr T for these photographs

please copy and alter this letter and send it in. the more the better.

Highways & Engineering,

Environment Services,
PO Box 92, Newton Bar,
Wakefield
WF1 1XS
Phone: 0845 8 506 506

To whom it concerns,

I wish to report an unsafe highway that could result in death or injury to pedestrians and traffic.
As you will see from the pictures provided the road and path surface have been coated with mud. This has created a dangerous area similar to an ice ring. Pedestrians have a choice of walking the path and slipping or walking on the road in to traffic. Traffic is faced with a road and junction that they could slide out of control into pedestrians or worse still into some ones garden.
It has been explained to all residents that daily security patrols and weekly WMDC inspections are being carried out by Janet Howleys department. Either this is not being done or the dangerous situations on the estate are being ignored.
I believe it correct that to leave a highway in such a state requires a “highway closure licence” that is applied for from the police and then works in conjunction with Alex Spur at WMDC. Could you confirm a licence is in receipt?
This matter requires immediate attention. My reason for writing is that contact by phone to complain results in no action. I consider this letter a formal notification that the publics life is at present in danger.
I await your swift reply and actions,

Regards
Gareth Yates

janethowley@wakefield.gov.uk

To Janet Howley,

I have had to write to you as my spoken words appear to be neglected. By writing to you I am expecting action within the 28 days WMDC considers it should reply to all complaints.
At the last residents meeting facts were stated into the public realm regards your departments resources and actions,
1.   You are employing security to look over the Girnhill estate.
2.   You are making weekly visits to the estate to establish any un-boarded entry points to any un-occupied homes and will board them up correctly where needed.
3.   Any property that is un-safe shall be made so.

Since that meeting Councillor Roy Bickerton and I have contacted your department on a weekly basis to report infringement of the said. Three weeks later and I declare to you that not 1 action has been taken.
I would like to point out a case scenario, no 7 Ashcroft Avenue. This was a good friend of mines home and before his death. I said that I would look out for his home of many years. Like many other homes on the estate this one was systematically set on fire so that later on the local scum could ransack and loot precious metals.  No 7 has been burnt out for 4 weeks. In that time all manor of scum have been seen taking items and even using the next doors garden that is occupied, to strip items down.
Every person I have talked to has given the same feeble excuse that no. 7 cannot be secured because it has an unsafe chimney. A good try, but try harder when I point out that the said chimney is in fact dangerous and could fall on to the back door of no5, thus killing anyone stood there. When they are killed will you act then?
Your non actions are attracting scum and youths who are creating more damage.
I await your reply over the next 24 hours before I report the situation to the police, every relevant department and person within WMDC and central government. I am looking into the possibility of free legal aid for criminal and civil action as the situation is VERY serious.
A further point to describe my heart felt passion. I see the scene of my friend’s life exposed and on show similar to robbing his coffin or going to the toilet without walls. Pride and privacy yet alone safety is a right within this free country. The recent episode where someone impersonated you on the internet should give you an idea if you x by 100 of how that feels when someone takes away your privacy.
I await your reply

Regards

Gareth Yates

It's an utter disgrace how the people of Girnhill lane have to live, and the workmen are not making it any easier by leaving roads in this state. But then agian yesterday was half come 3o'clock there off doesn't matter about the mess they've left behind not there problem. However if an accident should happen due to the mud left on the street then who do we blame, who would claim off for compensation.

Reply by Yetion1

thats good info Mr T. the dates are interesting. the letters also by my eyes dig a hole for WMDC.

the laws on best tender bid plus what was said to you all regards 7 builders applying for the tender last Monday is great. you were all told that the best package would come from the builder who could give the best deal. 2 offered a like for like deal and one of the two was taylor woodrow. the council must have forgot they were talking to them.

my favourate bit is "as home owners it is for you to decide". now that is the truth. as for CPO when they have it they can threaten it, but not until.

my update for today comes from the letters sent yesterday,
1.Dear Mr Gates
 
Thank you for your email below and copies of the letters to Highways and Engineering and Housing and Public Protection.
 
I have asked the relevant officers to provide me with copies of their responses to you and to keep me updated on the situation.
 
Regards
 
Peter Box
Councillor Peter Box
Leader of the Council
i take the name change as a pee take. come on Mr Box thats silly.

2.I acknowledge receipt of your e-mail regarding the above.  I have contacted the appropriate officers of the Council and asked that action be taken as a matter of urgency.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Regards
Denise

well they have 28 days to pull their socks up. after that its complaint time to central goverment. ;D

Mmm...I can't think why there would be a road sweeper going up and down clearing all that mud away! Anyone would think someone had complained about it  ;D (Right Yetion1?). How dare they come up at that time on a morning and wake up all those who were still getting a bit of beauty sleep?  ;) (well..when I say "all" I mean the half a dozen of us). I have to moan about the noise it was making because I haven't got any neighbours to complain about...LOL!  ;) Got to have laugh about it otherwise we'd cry living up here!  ;D

Reply by Yetion1

you lot are doing a great job. please dont stop. the history you are all adding is daming never mind heart thumping.
i have tried to get JANET today, no joy. thats been an offical 5 working days. my second letter will arrive with them on monday. i will be copying it to every person of inportance on the planet, especially the police as my new tack, knowingly endangering the lives of public/ pedestrians by explosion.

i was great full that a member of the public called me this morning who had seen a blue pick up and 5 males outside Jacks. i called the police who apparently got there in 5 minutes? i dont know if they got them. the police sounded interested more than normal as i repoted "looting". this is seen as more serious than many petty crimes.

i have a heart string to tell, and its sick.
the latest bully boy tactic by WMDC is to start disconnecting mains services gas, water and electric to some empty propertys that still have a resident next door. what they forgot to tell was that this means both homes are cut off leaving the resident in dry, cold, darkness. sue me for saying the person responsable wonts just 1 punch between the eyes. you would think the problem would be solved by the caring WMDC people who stated they were looking after the remaining residents. the facts are up to 5 days people have been left and then in shear desperation have had to contact contractors and pay out of their own pocket to be re-connected. i am still shocked at what i have heard >:(

heads must roll, the evidence is becoming daming :o

Dear Janet

GIRNHILL ESTATE

In response to your letter dated 4 April I must disagree and refute some of your reply and ask my questions again.
For 4 weeks I have been contacting your department and reporting,
1.   An un-safe building that is endangering peoples lives.
2.   Looting caused by inadequate security measures that are neither monitored nor policed.
Your explanation again falls down when you state that “regular contact is being made with elected members both by telephone and e-mail”. One of us is telling a un-truth as I have been in contact with the same elected members who I know have made the same complaints as I with similar results, no response. Prior to writing this letter I have again confirmed this by asking if they agree.

7 Ashcroft Avenue

1.   I am glad you mentioned service connection. In this instance where a property has been the result of arson like many others, surely the gas supply alone should be cut off immediately so as not to put other residents at risk from explosion.
2.   The fencing provided by the contractor and the way it is fitted is inadequate. All you have to do is walk around it and then gain entry. The fencing will go missing because you have a plague of thieving scum making money from weighing it in. the only people that are benefiting from the fence are the thieves. The extra fencing is being used as a ladder to gain better access.
3.   I am glad you have mentioned the chimney as it has been used as a escape goat to not do anything. You state that the chimney is precarious yet the pointing is in good condition. Either it is safe or un-safe? As a building renovator from my eyes it looks safe, but as in WMDCS words if it is un-safe then should not a duty of care be taken to remove the danger to the resident at no5?
Number 7 is neither secure nor safe structurally. Also it is a magnet to thieves. I have a great video showing the new use of the fence and the repeated thefts. As they say the camera never lies. On 3 separate visits in 2 weeks I personally have had to call the police 3 times. On each occasion people have been apprehended. It does not appear to take much to stop the problem only be there. I have found another extreme also. On Sunday morning I witnessed a convicted thief from the site who was trying to hide in a hole with his loot waiting for another male to come with a wheel barrow. I had spotted a police parked down the road so I went back for help. I got none and I don’t believe they even called in what I reported to them. There concern was motorists on Wakefield road. This incident has been reported to inspector Dick Jones at Normanton.

I also have been in contact with number 5. They have great concern of the building going on fire again and also the thieves who have even been using there garden to strip items down in.

The so called immediate action is incorrect. I have witnessed your officials viewing empty homes. One in particular had a rear door cover pulled up. It was seen and nothing done. I have a picture to prove my words. In fact in some cases the residents themselves are coming home and checking themselves and then making repairs just so they can have good nights sleep. These are desperate people in fear.
My allegation regards WMDC doing nothing still stands as your provided service is not responding. An interesting point is that Denise Jefferies called the neighbourhood patrollers to assist you last meeting at Chesneys and got a response in 10 minutes. In 4 years I have never had a response after a call as I have all ways been told no one is available.

You have stated that after discussion with fire and police you cannot secure the premises to stop determined thieves. Knowing this should not 24 hour security on site be provided? Upper most should not every newly empty property have its services immediately cut so as to provide a safe environment to live?

Your reply regards security at the last meeting leaves me perplexed. I evaluate from your reply that basically you have done nothing to increase security only talked amongst yourselves. The neighbourhood patrollers are based in Osset now and not Featherstone. I could have built a house by the time they get here. I predict that I could make 3 to 10 arrests a week on the estate. I believe it is now time for someone to show you how it is done. The resulting arrest figures, reports and statistics can then be provided to you to prove no policing is evident unless carried out by a third party.

You have clarified the present situation. It is fully inadequate, unreasonable and in-humane. Again I ask that the residents be helped more.

fabulous post gareth you have made some excellent points. the count down has begun until we find out who as got the contract to develop the estate (end of april) I have spoken to our barrister today and he is appauled at the way we are again been treated and is writing to wmdc . he as also listend to the tape and his out raged at the tactics used by Bob Hall and has put wmdc on offical notice that we have more damnning evidence of the underhand tactics used by one of there employees , so things are starting to get intresting. it also nice to hear you got a big right up in the labour candidates manifesto leaflet for stopping the development of "new housing for the elderly
 residents of Girnhill lane" where do they come up with these ideas I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE GIRNHILL LANE FIGHT FOR OVER 5 YEARS AND NOT ONCE AS IT BEING MENTIONED TO ANY RESIDENT THAT THEY WOULD BE OFFERD A NEW HOME ON THE LISTER CLOSE SITE , SO DICK ITS YET ANOTHER UNTRUTH. kEEP UP THE GOOD FIGHT.


Title: Re: Latest News From Girnhill Lane
Post by: yetion1 on April 07, 2008, 08:38:34 pm
a reply from a resident,

I'm writing in response to what Janet Howley say's in the letter she sent you about Jack's house! She states that in the last 2 weeks alone, the fencing and signage has been ripped off and stolen 3 times and that Hutchinson's have replaced it and also the signage has "again" been removed!
I beg to differ, because as far as I'm aware, the fencing that is round the house now is the fence that was originally put there! Even the loose fencing in the garden (which is a lot easier to pinch) is "STILL" in the garden! As for the signage, when the fencing was put up, it "DIDN'T" have any signage on to start with, so they obviously think it was there and has been stolen, when in fact, when they put the signage on, they wasn't replacing it, they was merely putting on the 1st sign which is the one there now! Yes it's inadequate fencing but in my eyes, neither any of the fence or the signage has been stolen! They have added fencing to what was originally there because they were using next door to get in, but like I said, nothing's been stolen!
 
MORE UN-TRUTH JANET?

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?

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!

What makes me laugh is this, every letter they send out, they "always" talk as if everythings going ahead smoothly and seem oblivious to the fact that until they offer us a "LIKE FOR LIKE" deal, we ain't going anywhere! Now they know that, so why do they always go on as if that's not the case?

A version of Reply letter

You have stated a public meting last month. Was this the same one that was for residents only and guarded by 2 WMDC neighbourhood patrollers?
In previous correspondence you have stated that the tender bid would be won by early April. This should now be decided. The new date stated of start of negotiation from July is un-reasonable and against the remaining tenants human rights.  Any chosen developer should be brought forward to the residents to state what deal they are looking at. At least 2 developers had a like for like deal on offer. If this is now the case then the shear mental torture the residents have endured could be stopped by knowing the future plans as soon as possible. I must also remind you that WMDC almost shuts down in August due to holidays; this would take us until September before the process could begin. This is un-reasonable knowing the facts.

The middle section of policing I am sure others hear can fill in.

As you have mentioned the relocation package I would like to ask a question. Is it legal or against my civil rights for some one such as Bob to state that if we do not take the package we will be C P O D ( COMPULSARY PURCHASED)?

Apparantly, the 2 blokes who (supposedly) have something to do with wildlife (birds, bats etc) who were round here the other day, have been around again today taking photo's of the house next door to Jacks (also burnt out) from "INSIDE" the fence (everyone must think the fence is there to make it look pretty or summat and not to KEEP PEOPLE OUT) and on one of the houses apparantly (next door to a resident) they tried pulling one of the shutters off! It's unbelievable!

Apparantly, there isn't any birds nesting in the empty houses now and to prevent them nesting there in the future, someone has been round today and filled in all the ventilation holes with foam! I don't know if the council have sent them or what but they clearly don't take safety very serious!

TAKE A LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING....

Once again the estate has been visited by the wildlife people (6 of them this time to be precise) and it seems to me, there is more concern over the birds then there is the residents! Now I'm no bird hater, in fact there is always fat balls and nuts out for them in our garden, but things are just getting silly! We seem to be getting every Tom, Dick & Harry coming up here opening up the properties and then just nailing them back down again so they can be ripped off again! We've already had the bat people descend upon us a few months ago, now it's the turn of the bird squad, who's it going to be next week? Hedgehog hunters? No one comes out visiting the resident's to see if "THEIR HOMES ARE SAFE". Another thing is this (and you really have to laugh at this) ,in an earlier post, I mentioned how they have already been around and filled in all the ventilation holes with foam, well take a look at the following picture (Picture's are much better than words) and see for yourself what's funny (If not totally stupid)

I must admit that i don’t get to go round Girnhill much, but tonight i went for a trip round, and to be quite honest its a disgrace that its being left the way it is.

What shocked me most was the fact that in one of the front gardens there were a couple of kids. . . surely that’s not safe, especially as all the bits of building there, seems to be everywhere.

I know this may have been said before, but isn’t peoples safety what should come at the top of the local authorities list of things to do?
Or would that be too easy . . .

A MESSAGE TO W.M.D.C.

As summer approaches, no doubt you will all, as most people do, be looking forward to the long (hopefully hot & sunny) days, and the chance to be outdoors in the garden, whether it be to catch a few rays of the sun or having family & friends round for a barbecue, relaxing in a chair perhaps with a beer, listening to the birds singing and having a laugh and a joke!

Whilst enjoying all this, spare a thought for the remaining residents of Girnhill Lane, as all we hear is the noise of diggers, and enjoy the following beautiful scenery...

You are these peoples guardian angel Mr T. your picture of Jacks house bulldozed has left me a lump in my throat and in tears. As long as it has been since Jack left us I feel I must say “FAIR WELL JACK”, and remember the last time we went to the Rustics fishing.
WMDC really is mad. After over a week filling holes with foam they knock it all down. I wonder just how much that has cost us all.
 Your plane pictures, by modern standards what a good looking place to live. It says to me families.
from what i have heard the safety executive should have been on site. bricks were flying, fences were damaged and lives were put at risk. the only good thing i have heard is that they swept the road. that would be probably due to the fine they would get after their warning.
the June date for the next meeting is far to long away. i can only suggest you all complain to bring it forward.

I have something funny (which has just come to my attention) to add to my story about the boarded up houses and people coming out to fill in the ventilation holes with foam to stop the birds nesting. As you know, there was 2 funny things, allow me to re-cap for you!

(1) One of the houses that had it's vents filled up, had doors and windows missing as well as the roof, so therefore birds could still fly in and nest! (Read earlier post)

(2) They have since re-commenced demolition of the houses only a week after filling the holes!

And now...I present...

(3) One of the houses, (which also has an upstairs window missing) cannot be demolished just yet, because a robin has nested in the bathroom! Oh dear!

So Mr Trickett has shown his face in Featherstone today, Mmm...funny how we only ever see him around here when it's voting time! One place we didn't see him of course was Girnhill Lane, why is that then I wonder? Why hasn't he got the back bone to come up here and see it for himself and see the conditions we're all having to live in, see the misery we are having to go through day in day out, see people coming to scavenge what they can every 2 minutes (3 lots in 10 minutes the other day and only 5 minutes after the demolition people went). WHY? Because he doesn't give a monkeys!

Yes wasn't it nice that John Trickett came to Featherstone what an honour indeed, bet he didn't stay long though. I do feel sorry for people living there i myself spend alot of time on the Girnhill estate and find it bemusing why kids of the age of 9 - 10 are hanging around on demiltion sites and reigniting fires with left over rubble. It's not fair to the people living up there something needs to be done.

i was not sure where to place this picture, polatics or girnhill. as tricket his secretary and dick arrived in town they made a B line for kays window and started taking pictures. i had this sign in reserve and could not resist nor could a friend who just had to pose with me. sorry for my daft smile, i could not help it as over the road was tricket staring daggers. the sign is a history of the torment suffered by the residents. the way i see it the more lies that are told the more truth will have to revieled.

The pictures are proof enough why not to vote Labour, if the labour controlled council would have agreed to the like for like deal which the independents got with a developer then the residents would now be enjoying a new home and not living in fear. I wonder if King, Dick and Rocky (Tricket) will show there face and ask the arson attacked residents for there vote ?. The fire service deserve a mention for doing a great job on the estate, as for the police did they attend ? Or were they busy else ware ?  ??? >:(

WANTED!!!

3 youths aged 9/12 were seen before the fires going to the site and one of the 3 walking away after the fire started. if you can add to this call the police or PM me and i will pass it on.

also a 17/23 male was seen on a near by roof. the only description is slim with ginger hair.

i have contacted the police to ask what is being done. the reply is that while on shift they are looking around the site. yesterday they inspected the garage after a report and found no gas bottles but did report to WMDC that the garage required securing.

my own opinion is that the patrolls stated by wmdc are not enough. a full time security presence has to be placed on the area and now. things are quickly getting worse the more people leave. a good tacktic by some hell for others.

I would like to add to my previous post regarding the police and the fires on the estate yesterday (Sat 26th April). The police were in town on the day of the fires, they were on Wakefield Road catching speeding motorists "again"! I suppose serious issues like catching a motorist doing 35 in a 30 zone is far more important than catching arsonists who puts peoples lives in danger! Another thing, why is there never any investigations into all these fires, even more so this latest one as residents were affected! Arson is a serious crime but yet nothing gets done!

Post by: yetion1 on April 29, 2008, 10:25:41 pm
the term CPO is not just a thing they can threaten people with. in brief the desition will eventually come from the goverment at the request of WMDC. this will take many months and thats without a solicitor getting involved.

Typical! Morrisons (that's the utility people, not the supermarket) have been round today, dug up a hole outside a residents house, fenced it off and buggered off! Why do they always do that? As if the place isn't an eyesore to start with! Mind you saying that, it'll keep the yobs happy won't it. I'll give it just the one day before the fencing and signs are either, knocked over, thrown in someones garden or strewned all over the estate!

Morrison's, the utility people, have been inside an empty property today (1st May) next door to a remaining resident. I'm not sure exactly which service it is they are attending to, but obviously, they have had to enter the property to do it, that's fair enough! However, as usual, the property has been left unsecure as all they have done is put the shutter back and tapped in one of the screws! You can see from the picture, it can be easily ripped off again! As well as that, there isn't any door on behind the shutter, so it's straight into the house! Surely, with this being next door to a resident, securing it again PROPERLY should be a No.1 priority, especially after all the recent arson attacks that have been taking place!

This is typical of people who are employed by the council. Just like our council they have no consideration for the safety of the remaining residents on the girnhill estate. I just hope that no will try and break into the house for the neighbours sake. Brilliant pictures Mr T.

My neighbour has just been round and informed me that his water has been cut off since the workers were working next door.  He phoned the water company and they say nothing is wrong.   Errr no water coming through taps means there is something defo wrong, or am I being pedantic.

Post by: Mr T on May 01, 2008, 11:18:02 pm
It's unbelievable! As well as having to live in a hell hole, we are having our services disrupted too! We had to have our gas re-piped back in a while back because when they capped off next door to us, they capped us off too! Now our neighbours are having their water cut off and only the other month, the entire estate had no electricity because they damaged the cable with the digger!

Hmmm before there shuttered up
or after?
any bets?


Title: Latest News From Girnhill Lane
Post by: Mr T on May 07, 2008, 03:23:47 pm
Mmm...Good question Eleanora! Well, let's look at the current situation! They are slowly running out of whole empty blocks to torch, and the ones that are left are shuttered (although that hasn't stopped them in the past), so an unsecure house might be tempting for them! If I had to predict what was going to happen, I would say looters in first, leaving it totally unsecure, followed by the Pyromaniacs!

Dear Janet

RE THE GIRNHILL ESTATE

Since the 25th of April a number of street light have had their mains supply cut off. This has left a very dark area particularly where newly empty houses are. I am sure you have been made aware of this by your 24 hour patrols and also by your weekly and other visits to the area.
I would be grateful for any advice you can offer as to when the lights will be back on. Also as a request could you inform me of any regulation in respect of reasonable time street lights should be out in bulk. My reason for the request is that a number of residents have asked and I do not have the answer.


Title: Re: Latest News From Girnhill Lane
Post by: eleanora on May 08, 2008, 09:19:09 am
last night about 11pm, amey van seen driving round estate,looking at un lit lights,
this morning about 9am, amey men seen working on unlit lights on went ave,
lets hope whatever they have done to the lights they work now, the question is for how long?
as soon as the scumbags find out there are more empty houses they wil be round smashing the lights so they can do their  thing ei; vandalising looting & arson.
WELL DONE YETION! ;)
your letter must have done the trick  ;D
just had a look one of the lights is on now SUPRISE!!!

This is the latest letter sent to the remaining residents today regarding the CPO, along with a load of other stuff, including a form we are suppose to fill in and send back to them! I like the map they included with our house highlighted (As if I didn't know where I lived). I haven't put that on the forum! Obviously, they still think we are all going to lay down and die! BRAVE MOVE W.M.D.C.

Post by: yetion1 on May 08, 2008, 08:33:07 pm
Thank you for your e-mail.  I have spoken to AMEY who look after the street lighting on the Estate, and they have advised me that a number of columns on Went Avenue and Went Grove have been affected and a series of repairs have been made.  More recently, two columns on Went Grove have been repaired 3 times in as many days due to ongoing vandalism, and of the 2 columns out on Went Avenue, 1 was vandalised yet again and has been fixed yesterday, but the second has been referred to YE as there is a problem with the supply to it.  AMEY have advised that normal faults are repaired the same day but any non routine fault has a target repair date of 3 to 5 working days. 

 

I have asked the neighbourhood patrollers to be extra vigilant around this part of the estate, but the problem appears to be recurrent and ongoing vandalism.  It appears that it is not a range of columns that are out but in bulk but a large number of ongoing incidents.  Repairs are being undertaken immediately, but the same columns are being vandalised soon after repair.

 

I trust this answers your query.

an item from an old post by popeye has been put in front of me. i think it is worth re-mentioning as it is a good place to complain to.

if you are a being exposed to any risk or danger to health or being enviromentaly threatened, i.e. dust, noise, litter, vermin, air polution including smoke or mess from demolishion crews/ traffic or scum arsonists.... then try Enviro Clean.

tel: 08078506506. this will put you in touch with the enviroment agency at pheonix house in Leeds. they are not with WMDC , in fact they are the bugs in the bed for any authority and will attend any call involving breaches of the enviromental protection act 1990.

the next problem that shows up have a go and include the conditions you are living in. its as easy as picking up the phone. they are eager to issue enforcment notices to unfair situations.

the newly empty house on went ave was set on fire last night,don't think there was a lot of damage i haven't been round to look yet,no sign of fire at the front of the house will let ya know what the back looks like later after iv'e been for a nosey,well it is the newest tourist attraction in fev,going by the amount of people that have already been to see if the previous occupier has left owt!!
have just been round the back of no50 went ave,seems they set fire to the fence & a conifer,all the shuttering looks ok but outside the side door lots of glass??
no 48 side door shuttering been pulled back so someone has been inside,

I saw the fire engine go passed and noticed it turned left at the end and so I assumed it was going to the newly empty house, and it looks like I was right. It just shows you how we have all developed a 6th sense up here and can predict what's going to happen! I knew it couldn't be the entire house cos there wasn't any sign of smoke thank goodness! As for the looters and scavengers, what I want to know is this, what on earth will they do "WHEN" it's re-developed up here? They're all gonna be buggered aren't they? They won't know what to do with themselves and I suppose the same goes for the arsonists!

residents meeting tuesday night at B+S confirmed to me today bit i believe notices have gone out.

a little more from Janet,
Thank you for reply.  I am advised that AMEY have been installing meshing covers, but often the damage is through the column screen doors resulting in the wiring being physically damaged or removed.  I shall ask them to ensure that meshing is used as often as possible to give some protection to the physical bulbs.

Re the information about traveler activity, the demolition contractor has been instructed to build sizeable bunds immediately after demolition, but I shall pass on your local knowledge that activity is increasing, to ensure that they are extra vigilant, as prevention is a better option than having to take action to move travelers on if they are successful.

With thanks

Janet Howley

I think it's about time all the holes on the estate were filled in now as they have been there long enough! All they keep doing is digging them and leaving em! Why does that always happen? No matter where it is, if a hole is dug, it's left ages before being filled in! The hole which was featured in my poll (SEE ROADWORKS IN "HIGHWAYS AND PATHS") is right outside a remaining residents house, I asked him today when he was going to fill it with fish and use it as his new garden feature!

I HAVE JUST REALISED I CRACKED A JOKE WITHOUT TRYING....FILL IT WITH FISH....FILLET?...OH NEVER MIND!  ;D

Some of the holes from the work that Morrisons are doing on the estate have been filled in on one street (GOOD). Unfortunetly, they didn't sweep up after them (BAD). It does actually look worse than what it is in the photo and as you can see, it goes all the way down to the bottom of the street!

My dear Mr T.
If they swept the all the mess onto the road then the road sweeper would have to come and sweep it up, but it'd all go into the gutters.
Then, they would have to come and clean all the guttering out. . . or leave it to build up . . . which could lead to blocked drains and what not. . . leading to flooding. . . thus creating more work which ever way you look at it  . . .

It's always the same when they are demolishing a property! You can guarantee they will bugger something up! What have we had so far...Mmm...let's see...electric cut off, water cut off and god knows how many times they have knackered up the drainage causing everything to back up! Fair's fair though regarding the water, that was the utility people's fault and not the demolition team but they still lead in the **** up department!

In my last post, I posted pictures of the latest house's to go up in flames (Monday 26th May). Well fast forward only "3" days to Thursday 29th May (9:30PM) and the ones next door to those have also been targeted! The pictures are slightly blurry due to the fact I'm far away (Stood in the exact same place I was stood last time to be precise) and I'm using night vision which uses a slower shutter speed!
