Former tipped land only suitable for hard development

Sheila Oliver made this Freedom of Information request to Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Waiting for an internal review by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council of their handling of this request.

Dear Stockport Borough Council,

Greater Manchester Geological Unit in their proof of evidence from David Woolrich to the public inquiry in 2006 regarding Stockport Council's refusal to allow a housing development on a still gassing, tipped, former Jackson's Brickyard site at Adswood, Stockport states:-

"The only suitable forms of hard developments are large scale commercial developments such as offices, supermarkets etc. Schemes to protect buildings in these situations need to provide multiple levels of protection e.g., extraction wells, sealing techniques, ventilation voids and extensive monitoring."

Please may I see any evidence that also in 2006 Greater Manchester Geological Unit gave any consideration to the above in their contamination investigations with regards to the building of a 550 pupil primary school on a still gassing, tipped, former Jackson's Brickyards site at Harcourt Street.

Yours faithfully,

Sheila Oliver

FOI Officer, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Mrs Oliver,

I am writing in response to your request for information below (ref 2825).

As you have previously been informed, all your requests for information
about Harcourt Street are considered to be vexatious under section 14(1)
Freedom of Information Act 2000 and manifestly unreasonable under
Regulation 12(4)(b) Environmental Information Regulations 2004 and will
not receive a response. This decision has previously been through the
Council's internal review process and was upheld.

You are entitled to complain to the Information Commissioner's Office. To
do so, contact:

Information Commissioner's Office

Dear FOI Officer,

To reply to this request would incriminate the Council. This
wonderful website will be used in evidence in any subsequent
corporate manslaughter charges, presumably to be brought against
the Chief Executive, Director of Children and Young People's
Directate and the Executive Councillor, who have come to the
attention of the Coroner already regarding what is happening with
the unnecessary deaths of Stockport council taxpayers who have
dealings with the CYPD.

In addition, the town hall protester has been arrested yet again,
his wife said and I know her to be a truthful person, for trying to
obtain a council meeting agenda. This issue will now have to go
back to court and cost the taxpayer more thousands of pounds. I
believe the town hall protester tried to harm himself whilst in
this last custody. This is yet another Death in Progress at the
hands of Stockport Council.

Yours sincerely,

Sheila Oliver

Is my local MP Andrew Stunell having a laugh here? I repeatedly
asked him to make Stockport Council reply to questions, which they
have avoided for about four years:-

I shall ask him again for help and post his response, or lack of
it, on this site.

Have a look at this frightening You Tube clip of the brown asbestos
"experts" languidly and unscienficially removing brown asbestos
from the school site:-
