OK, done some research into this which everyone can do. There are rumours that the gasworks are connected to a leak but in fact they are not, they are a major gasworks to replace 200 meters of old pipeline. Been on the Government website and sought out the guidelines for such gasworks.
All City Councils work under what is called a 'permit scheme'. Here is the goverment explanation:-
A permit scheme requires those carrying out street works or road works to obtain a permit from the highway authority first. A permit system is pro-active as the undertaker has to actively seek permission to work and an authority needs to consider whether it is appropriate to grant the permit. It therefore gives authorities more scope to coordinate the timing of works in order to reduce disruption. Permits can also be granted with conditions attached, for example covering the times of day at which works may be carried out.
I would like you to pay attention to the part that says:-
A permit system is pro-active as the undertaker has to actively seek permission to work and an authority needs to consider whether it is appropriate to grant the permit
Ladies and gentlemen, someone has signed your Christmas away, the amount of disruption, lost profits for businesses, absolute pain created by this mess is going to be nothing less than phenomenal. Those of you out there who will lose money through your businesses can actually claim it back from the Gas company, that is stated in the Government guidelines.
Now lets get down to business; who and for what reason has signed on a dotted line to allow this to wreck Featherstone's Christmas?
Does anyone have any backbone to stand up to the person(s) that did it.
Is there still political stupidity going on in this town and are we still being punished for having the independent Councillors years ago.
Someone is playing at silly buggers.
