I am sending this letter to all households in Harbour View, and households between 32 and 99 Greens Place to explain the outcome of the Council’s investigations into the recent developments at the Tyne Slipway in River Drive.
I have endeavoured to answer all the various questions that have been raised with the Council in recent months, including in a petition which many local residents have signed.
He generally answered the questions with misrepresentations.
There was actually no need for a Second Stage complaint as the Planning Manager had conceded that the shed was nearly 3m taller than planned. It appears that following my email, on behalf of the residents, to the Planning Manager, 3-Mar-14, the Council changed their story from the shed had been approved to one that the variations were only minor. They were not, and they were covering for the negligence of their building control inspectors by lying over the phone to enquirers. Was there anything in writing until this response to our Petition? I doubt it.
