So this suggests that Verner could be redesigned or even rebuilt. Interesting, thanks for that. If you get hold of any more plans or info please post it. Cheesy

Sorry about that Roll Eyes Tongue

Ref: Featherstone Girnhill estate

Yet another 2 weeks of enforced hell has been endured by the Girnhill residents. In response to my letter 2 weeks a go the drains appear to be the only problem that has been investigated. Strangely one team has been digging whilst an individual’s quest could not find the house until a week ago. By this time a third person/s entered Mr Cottinghams property and sucked the offending effluent out. Cohesion appears to have been very lacking.
I still wait for a full response.
The second important issue as documented for 2 years is empty property security. The properties listed for the past weeks/ months still remain either un-boarded or entered and not repaired.
The residents continue to suffer daily without response.
The situation is now far beyond reasonable. Public safety is blatantly being ignored.
Regards

Ref: Featherstone Girnhill estate

I have received little or no response to my letters sent to you dated 19.07.09 and 02.08.09. I did not expect that there would be a response after 2 years of notifying WMDC regards enforced public safety issues even after providing you with a meeting with police fire service and arson task force to remedy the matter. Shutter designs provided have still not been implemented since March after again providing you with all the details.
As it is now reasonable to consider that WMDC are at fault I have recorded a complaint to the WMDC complaint department against the entire Regeneration, Development and Strategic Housing department for their failure of “duty of care”  and “endangerment of  public life” at the “huge cost of the rate payers”.
After incidents today it is clear that my complaints require even more consideration. Today has seen the most bizarre and blatant disregards for the public of Featherstone that I have to ask who or how many people will be sacked.
The contractors today have left the Girnhill estate in such a state that it begs belief.  No 9/11 Ashcroft road have not only been left unsecured but the windows and doors have been removed from the front and back.

Front                                                                                


Rear


If this is not bad enough the contractors have piled a small bonfire of combustibles in each front and back doorway and garage. Perhaps they think the £100 per week protection they are paying makes them immune?

Front


Rear


Like the many poor sets of workmen employed to work to these standards by WMDC there has been no monitoring as claimed would be by Janet Howley.  A final sprinkle of toxic waste to the recipe on the unsecured site is asbestos in a neat pile just ready to burn.
 I expect that by the time you read this letter the property will be a burnt out shell with surrounding residents as usual recovering from the chocking smoke.





For the record the situation today was reported to WMDC regeneration at 5.05pm. It was then reported to WMDC contact centre ref: C61845 at 6.05pm. It was reported to police and fire service at 6.15pm ref 149806.08.09.

As usual the situation is far beyond reasonable. Public safety is blatantly being ignored and a “duty of care” to the Featherstone public is being ignored.
I would appreciate that the WMDC complaints procedure is hurried to less than a 28 day response. The matter then can finally be passed in full to the local government Ombudsman who may then stop a life being lost. Talking of lives lost. After 2 months an elderly gent still lives in a semi with the empty side unsecured fully and door unlocked as reported several times before. It would be very fair to say that if arson were to take place that the blood would be on WMDC hands.
Regards

Hope the dog can swim,looked well peering down manhole.Ann Pittard,Janet Howley and all associated with the Department that is handling Girnhell lane estate and VERNER STREET ie the Rip off and Regenerate Dept ot WMDC (Wakefields Mugabe Demolishing Contractors) (dint vote for NL so bulldozers in) know exactly whats happening,a look around other councils show they all carry out Regeneration schemes the same way,shove a few undesireables into empty properties and the thin edge of wedge is in,people soon get fed up and move because as all find out,council does nowt,just sit back on arses and let nature take its course.look at DTZ.....£100,000 to tell WMDC how to tidy up Station Lane,no problem,lets start by knocking the Eastern side of station lane down from Post office rd to Wakefield road they say,why not ask locals,no chance cos a little ruse they used in Girnhill lane estate was........do you want house knocking down and rebuilding?a big YES was what they knew they would get so they sent the letter AFTER the improvements had been done,if they're wanting to knock things down like the baths,let it get into a state where Demolishing it is the only way out,in Adrians case and all of us that has lived up there lack of police patrols and council have contributed to it.Back to the sewers then I'll sign off,Pont races  looming up........Alan Bailey that lived at 5 Ashcroft Ave has had a lot of trouble with his back yard and rear of Garages with sewerage for years he got it before it reached Adrian,this was blamed on nappies down drains rear of semi's on Ashcroft Road to the left of school access/verner footpath on Ashcroft Road,hope not bored you but lets hope you get a bit of history out of my reply,cheers,John

Noticed that 35 Ashcroft Avenue has been boarded up after being empty for over 12 months, the neighbours at 33 and 37 asked if the property could be left unboarded to try and stop the vandals attacking it as it looked like someone was still living there, this has worked upto now as no one has ever touched the property. As soon as the shutters were put on it has started attracting the low life scum to it, just how long before the shutters are ripped off and the vandals get in is anyone’s guess  Huh

Looks like someones complaints got every resident a letter of apology for the poor hedge cutting.

There has been rumour about compulsery purchase notices. They are not compulsery purchase notices  they are asking for info on your property. Whats strange is that its a firm called persona associates
who WMDC have hired to gather this info From Horsham west sussex??

Sounds to me like a late charge from the caveralry Roll Eyes

LOOKS LIKE THE FINAL BATTLE LINE HAS BEEN DRAWN.
From here on things get very interesting.






Section 16 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 provides as follows-
1. Where, with a view to performing a function conferred on a local authority by an enactment, the authority considers that it ought to have information connected with any land, the authority may serve on one or more of the following persons, namely-
(a) the occupier of the land; and
(b) any person who has an interest in the land either as freeholder, mortgagee or lessee or who directly or indirectly receives rent for the land; and
(c) any person who, in pursuance of an agreement between himself and a person interested in the land, is authorised to manage the land or to arrange for the letting of it,
a notice specifying the land and the function and the enactment which confers the function and requiring the recipient of the notice to furnish to the authority, within a period specified in the notice (which shall not be less than fourteen days beginning with the day on which the notice is served), the nature of his interest in the land and the name and address of each person whom the recipient of the notice believes is the occupier of the land and of each person whom he believes is, as respects the land, such a person as is mentioned in the provisions of paragraph (b) and (c) of this subsection.
2. A person who-
(a) fails to comply with the requirements of a notice served on him in pursuance of the preceding subsection; or
(b) in furnishing any information in compliance with such a notice makes a statement which he knows to be false in a material particular or recklessly makes a statement which is false in a material particular,
shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the Standard Scale of fines (currently £5,000, subject to alteration by Order).
