Badger activity increases on the Church Street site in Ore as Southern Water move in.

Badger activity increases on the Church Street site in Ore as Southern Water move in. 
28th July 2017

There has been an increase in the activity on the Badger sett at church Street not disclosed by the so called ecologists who work for the developer or council who made public statements there was no sett on this land.

This Badger sett has increased in ten days due to the stress digging from Southern Water on the site. Southern Water has been pumping tanker loads of water through the broken sewer which has fractured parts blown out of it of some 8"-1ft in size from the side wall. This is being done to try to resolve the flooding issues for properties in Clifton road, which are just less 20ft from the sewer in Clifton Road. Does this make any financial sense to you? The work carries on this morning with a new tanker load of water. The CIEEM is investigating statements made at the Planning Application of this matter in respect to CIEEM and memberships.

Councillors Street calls us liars

Councillors Street calls us liars
16th July 2016
Councillor Street in a public planning meeting said that there had been much misinformation given out by the supporters of Speckled Wood to protect the land at Church street . We was told that a fence had been errected which was not evident and that it had been placed to protect the badgers as was alleged by Cllr Richard Street Planning meeting . It is quite clear from the meeting that Mr Davidson was not even holding an updated biodiversity code of Practice for Planning and Development BS42020:2013 manual which he was refering to. This was evident from its cover. The advice was therefore in our opinion flawed.

On a visit to the site accompanying  Southern Water just last week it was evident that the badgers where not contained in this fence  and had dug out much to our suprise judge for your self we are quite appalled that none of the information provided by any party was taken into account it is just another serious flaw in the Councils Planning Department. Here is the sound recording that was taken:

Council poised to act in fraud .



Council poises to act in fraud .  
15th July 2017

The Badger Protection Society Ltd have spoken to the Friends of Speckled Wood today informing them that the Council is moving towards an act of fraud in its Planning matter HS/DS/17/00194, which is part of protected open space Speckled Wood. Mr. Newbold of the Badger Protection Society said that the latest document from the Planning Department was a clear move in the Council to cajole the Planning Committee to commit fraud. He said the Council is fully aware of their actions here on this land which Land Registry has informed him has a 32 Acre lease hold. Fraud is defined as wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain. Since this date the Land Registry has broken off communications and the matter has gone to the ICR . it is quite appalling to think that our Council could be acting in a fraudulent direction any not have any scrutiny in place to ensure this kind of actions are stopped.  Further action is being investigated.


We are quite appalled and you should be aware from this Hillsborough Inquiry that you could be accountable in these matters even 30 years hence. We strongly advise HBC get your house in order .

Is the Council trying to runaway from its liability?

Is the Council trying to runaway from its liability
23rd June 2017

The Council have been asked if its intention is to commit fraud this week and its reaction is to try to dispose of the land that this alleged fraud surrounds.


The Council has been notified of this fraud in its planning matter HS/DS/1700194.

http://publicaccess.hastings.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=_HSTBC_DCAPR_104541

It is also failing to put material on this site. Please object to this
 
The initial Registration of this land has been a subject of a complaint with Land Registry for over a month it is quite apparant that the 38 acres of land with a 1000 year lease has not expreed and the Councils First registration was flawed. The Inviestigation bodies are still investigating the matter . Is the Councils action consistant to an admition of this fraud? http://www.hastings.gov.uk/my_council/transparency/public/ The web site talks about transparancy. we can see no transparancy here when its own leader of the council used Speckled Wood to manover his seat in Ore.

Is this the kind of actions you expect from your Council A spokesman for the Friends of Speckled Wood Managment Trust said " This is disgraceful".

Planning Application on Church Street

Friends fight back to Save their Woodland
5th April 2017
The Friends of Speckled Wood Managment Trust Chairman has sent in 1.5kg of objection to the new reserved matters planning to put five  houses on Church Street again on top of the badger sett. This application was halted last month and the wildlife groups all believe it is the first phase to develop Speckled Wood, Hastings as the Council has nothing to register the land of Speckled Wood as they promised they would.

The Badger Society and Friends of Speckled Wood Managment Trust are keen to stop this from happening as it could be the start of real problems on other sites turning our town into a concrete jungle.

The Chairman of Friends of Speckled Wood Managment Trust said: "This is outrageous.". He also said that he will initiate a new consultation form on the friends' website to help the public submit their objection to this new threat on this woodland. The New form is now live on the internet as he promised here: http://www.friendsofspeckledwoodmanagementtrust.org.uk/consultation/

The Hastings Badger Protection Society Ltd also pledged their support stating "That they are absolutely disgusted."

Land at Church Street

Public Land at Church Street
14/12/2016

 It is known that the Council registered HT19042  in 1962 with an Application Form and document for induced registration. This was later transferred to Homes and Communities  in 2003. The red area is the area which is believed to be a village green and had been used up and to recently without let or hindrance for more than 40 years.

Council provided evidence in Freedom of Information Request that it didn't register your consultation for the Local Plan

Hastings Borough Council responded on the WhatDoTheyKnow website yesterday that it had no consultation responses for CV04 the land at Church Street, which was public land and had been used without let or hindrance for more than forty years. The document clearly shows in our opinion that the Consultation was rigged  by an unknown individual to remove traces of CV04. The consultations these figures come from are the Consultation on the Inspectors Preliminary Findings. The Council has until Friday to address this before the matter goes the ICO.

Development starts in Speckled Wood.

Development starts in Speckled Wood.
17 November 2016

A fencing truck arrived today along Church Street and has put up metal fencing rails in Church Street Speckled Wood. The Council has been contacted and has no knowledge of this and have referred the matter to enforcement team. Clearly this is what we expected would happen as the Council do not seem to be honoring the promises made by Councilor Peter Chowney in his election paperwork.
