Dear Councillor Weldon

I have no interest in continuing this - you are wasting my time. I will
send an inquiry cc the District Auditor about the toxic waste.

Kind regards

Sheila

Dear Councillor Weldon

I will go through it again.

Mr. Dunn attended a public meeting. The gentlemen from Viridor and GMWDA
raised the issue of Adswood Tip. We the public were asked whether we had
any questions. I did, but not relevant to SHAC, so I asked them outside the
meeting. I as a taxpayer pay Mr. Dunn's wages, so I presume I am entitled
to ask him questions.

I did not identify the site, as I did not think Mr. Dunn would know it. I
merely stated it was a former Jackson's Brickworks clay pit infilled with
rubbish - a sister site to Adswood Tip. Mr. Dunn stated that very careful
site investigations would need to be carried out (the gentleman from Viridor
confirmed this). This would actually be obvious to anyone with the
exception of Stockport Council. This is a school for goodness sake! Mr.
Dunn then gave me his card.

I merely stated to the Secretary of State that Mr. Dunn had stated very
careful investigations would need to be carried out. I also mentioned that
I didn't think that GMGU was qualified to carry this work out. I cc Mr.
Dunn so if he disagreed with what I was saying he had the opportunity to
refute it.

What this exchange of emails is showing is that you really have no interest
in the danger posed to local children from the inadequate site
investigations (not what was promised by the Executive) and the recent
dangers highlighted at a similar site.

Dear Secretary of State

The above matter is with you for a call-in decision. The proposed site is a
former Jackson's Brickyard claypit site which was infilled at a time when no
records regarding what was disposed there were kept.

I fortuitously met Mr. Paul Dunn, Executive Director, Greater Manchester
Waste Disposal Agency this evening. He told me that for the site to be used
for the proposed school very careful site investigations would need to be
carried out. Even the promised site-wide boreholing has not been carried
out, and Mr. Dunn felt that specialist contractors would need to carry out a
detailed investigation of this site. I don't believe Greater Manchester
Geological Unit has such expertise.

Given that a similar site had to be shut this week on safety grounds on
account of Methane, I feel it is quite frightening that Stockport Council
intends to build a school on this land without ensuring the safety of the
project. The Planning and Highways Committee totally ignored genuine
concerns about safety which had been raised by the area committee.

I do hope you will give due consideration to these important issues.

Kind regards

Sheila Oliver
