Denial: Sunday Working
To: Complaints Subject: Re: Sunday Working by UK Docks, River Drive.
|21-Dec||Alison was quoting the Ombudsman who had been misinformed. The site may have no restricted hours but according to the grant, 1996:- Condition 5. No works, other than the launching or beaching of vessels, shall take place within the shelter between the hours of 7pm and 7am Monday to Saturday and not at all on Sundays or Bank Holidays unless any written consent of variation is previously given by the Development Corporation as local planning authority.
She also qouted from the a submission by Planning Officer, Gary Simmonette to the Planning Committee for permission to lengthen the shed:- 5.61 It would be unreasonable to seek to impose a planning condition restricting the working hours of the boat repair business or restricting the types of works associated with boat repairs at this application site, as it is an established boat repair yard.
It may be true of the site but not the shed.
|22-Dec||To Alison again:
· my complaint is about Sunday working;
· no feedback reference number has been provided – I need one for escalation;
· this has referred to you and not the Environmental Health Team;
· ‘allegations of noise nuisance’- As I understand it, it was the noise that brought to our attention that Sunday working in the shed was taking place.
|Response from K Burrell
Thank you for your email, for completeness, I have attached the initial documents that we send out at the beginning of an investigation into a complaint of noise nuisance, this will include your reference number.
The reference 272189 referred to complaint raised by another person.
Denial No. 17
My letter (5-Oct-16) requested that you refrain from raising historical complaint issues regarding the boat shed or any other matters which had already exhausted the Council’s complaints procedure. Corporate Lead.
Denial No. 18
An Excuse for taking no Action. Dear Mr Dawson, As you are are dealing with the Council directly and processing an official complaint, I obviously cannot be part of any actions whilst claims and allegations are being investigated. Cllr Anglin
Denial No. 19
From: Alison Hoy on behalf of Customer Advocates
|10-Feb||A visit to the Town Hall estblished that Planning officer, Gary Simmonette was in charge of the the shed’s expansion and that Mr Burrell had given a reference number to timesheets that had been already been completed by another person.|
|14-Feb||Closure_of_Sunday_working.pdf (theharbourview.co.uk): Alison said “The reference number 272189 does not refer to a feedback logged on your behalf but to a 3rd party. This cannot therefore be sent to you.
It was confirmation that Mr Burrell was assisting Mr Simmonette in covering up the fact that UK Docks were using their shed on a Sunday and not for the purpose of slipping or launching a vessel.
