FBR 248789 – the Misepresentations

The complaint of 10-Jan was not recorded. The description in 248789 is not the complaint. It reads:
Comment: see email to planning 14/1/14. Mr Dawson asking various questions relating to the ongoing development at the slipway, River Drive, South Shields.

The complaint had simply been hidden away and may as well have been chucked in the bin. If you read through the entire lot you will see that the Planning Manager conceded that shed had not been built to approved plans and it was with reference to 8296/14.

You will also notice that he has written each of his responses in such a way to support the lie that the shed has approval and that included some fraudulent misrepresentations. The Planning Manager said:

  1. 28-Jan:  “In fact the 15.6m height is the height to River Drive and the height on the river side is some 3m greater – he was deliberately ignoring the note which said ‘to allow access’ for boats and would have known as well as I did that boats enter the shed fom the river;
  2. 28-Jan: “It is therefore reasonable to say that 8296/1A, 8296/1B, 8296/2 and 8296/4 represent the development which was approved in 1996 – it is not reasonable. ../1A or ../1B give a height of the river end as 15.5m and are not authorised because the height of landward end should read 15.5m – 2.7m or 3m + 9.8m or 12.8m, the 15.5m being in error. 8296/2 is authorised and gives the height as 12.7m;
  3. 13-Feb: The engineer chose to show a gable elevation of the structure (not drawn to scale) on the same drawing it is drawn to scale,  1: 100;

Subject: Slipway Development, River Drive
Dear Mr Dawson
Thank you for your email. Before the Council makes any decisions on the planning aspects of this case, we need to have a full understanding of the history of the site, and analyse all the facts. This is a complex matter and will take some time.
Planning Manager
04-Mar Local Residents Wish List
I say “Thank you also for confirming that the Slipway Shed is not built to the approved 1996 plans,” knowing that the only approved drawing with dimensions that we have seen shows a road end height of 12.7m.

13-Feb Admission that the Shed is not built to plan
3-Feb Dialogue leading to Concession
28-Jan Planning Manager’s Evasions
There are three indicators that the elevation is the north end (river end)of the structure: 1. Detail notes on the drawing ” strips to draw back to each side to allow access for boats”.
2 and 3  are more confirmation trhat the gable is at the river end.
24-Jan Questions Unanswered
What made you determine that the elevation is the South end when there is no such detail on the drawing?
