Making false claims of ownership on planning documents

We're waiting for james condon to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Planning Inspectorate,

I have evidence that an individual made false claims of ownership on a family farm to get planning permission, he knowingly claimed to be the sole owner of the farm when he had no legal right to make such a claim, by doing so he deceived the owners and gained planning permissions. When he did eventually become a co owner, he proceeded to carry out changes without planning permission and when confronted with this, he was made to apply for retrospective planning, which he was given, and yet he continued to make false claims of sole ownership, stating that there were no other interested parties, which he knew was an untruth and from this he has proceeded to make substantial cash gains. The council were and are well aware of these false claims but they refuse to take any action in revoking the planning permissions granted or other, and indeed despite much opposition from the co-owners, the council continue, by their inaction, to support the individual who has made the false claims and proceeded initially without planning. Surely this is in the first place a serious breach of planning, secondly it is a fraudulent act and thirdly it flies in the face of what we the public expect of planning authorities, whom we believe are not carrying out their duties as public employees, by their inaction, we believe they are condoning the deceit of those who are prepared to go to any lengths to hoodwink the authorities. Could you please perhaps give me your views on this.

Evidence of this is available for inspectiuon

Yours faithfully,

J M Condon

Plummer, Kevin, Planning Inspectorate

Reference: Freedom of Information request - Making false claims of
ownership on planning documents

Dear James Condon

Thank you for your recent email  to  the FOI inbox of 10^th December ,2019
. This is not an FOI request as you are not asking for documents but we
will investigate. However,could you please  supply further details in
terms of the local authority and site address. We normally aim to send a
full reply within 20 working days.  Unfortunately, due to significant
unforeseeable circumstances, we are currently short of available resources
and, therefore, replies may take a little longer than is usual, for which
we offer our apologies.  If the issues raised are complex, a more detailed
investigation will be needed, often requiring the views of those involved
with the case.  This may mean that we cannot reply to you as quickly as we
would like.  We still aim to keep you informed about the progress of your
correspondence.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

Kevin Plummer

Gray, Ashley, Planning Inspectorate

Dear Mr Condon

Thank you for your email of 10 December. Although you have titled it as a Freedom of Information request, I am not treating it as such as you have made no request for documents from us.

I should also explain that the Planning Inspectorate's primary role is to decide appeals made following a council's refusal of planning permission - we are not a "higher authority" over your local council and we have no jurisdiction to question them about their own decisions or investigate the points that you have drawn to our attention. We would therefore be exceeding our legal remit by commenting on what is a local matter between yourself, the person concerned, and your council.

I can only suggest that you either continue to raise your concerns through the council's own internal complaints process or, if you consider that you have exhausted this, it would be open to you to take up your concerns directly with the Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman, an independent agency with powers to investigate complaints about local authorities.

Yours sincerely
