Dear Leader, Chief Executive, Monitoring Officer
Branded a waster of the valuable time of council officers and councillors for asking about this problem years ago:-
Mr Ainsworth/Mr Vali – please ensure this reaches the Chief Executive and the Monitoring officer
I raised the issue of the removal of waste soil and the lorry movements with Stockport Council years ago. I knew all about it because I was one of the few people who had bothered to read the £250k Environmental Impact Assessment. Councillor Harding was the only other person I met who had also read it. I was informed by LibDem Councillors Goddard/Roberts/Weldon that I was wasting the very valuable time of councillors and council officers by raising this matter.
It now transpires, quelle surprise, that no-one else had considered this. Was it a certain Stuart Jackson who wrote to me slapping my legs for mentioning this? I can check.
Fortunately, the arrogant and incompetent Weldon/Goddard/Derbyshire/Roberts no longer hold power in Stockport, and thank (insert relevant deity) for that!
I would like a written apology for having been treated like this. Maybe the new Chief Executive is a decent person – we shall see.
I would like please to ask this question under the FOIA and EIR 2004:
Who was responsible for this glaring failure – the Council or the Contractors? Who will pay to put this right, and what is the cost likely to be?
I look forward to hearing from you and also to having replies to the numerous council meeting questions I have raised in recent months without response. I have also exercised my legal right to information from the Council’s annual accounts regarding the total A6 MARR expenditure this year – again without response.
