Good afternoon Mr Main

Are you able to give us any more information as to why you have contacted Homes England regarding the properties at Frost Lane, Hythe? Is there a sign there with our name on it? At present I don’t believe we are involved in this area but I am still investigating this for you. If you can please confirm your interest and why you have contacted ourselves it would be really helpful.

Kind regards

Dear Homes England Enquiries,
You had a large sign alongside the builders so assume you were financing the construction which finished some time ago .If they are left unoccupied much longer they are a target for vandals that have already burned down one partially built block of 8 flats

Yours sincerely,

Barry Main

Dear Barry Main
Reading your Homes England email trail I wonder if the land was identified as contaminated and not properly / successfully remediated. If therefore has no Final Validation of successful remediation.
Whilst not knowing the development you describe I am familiar with another Homes England current development at Daedalus, Hampshire. In partnership with builders Wates off plan sales, marketing is underway with Radian Homes. Daedalus is long identified as heavily contaminated by Homes England's commissioned CampbellReith Land Quality Statements, Outline Remediation Strategy and by various Radiological Surveys identifying Daedalus Radium 226 hotspots back to 1996. All facts learnt only recently by myself: to and also to existing residents' horror. Radian Homes recommends a solicitor of (explained) long association which offers to many's surprise a Search Indemnity to buyers. (In case land turns out to be contaminated it was explained to me.)
Perhaps an emailed check/appt on your Council's legally required Land Contamination Register (call Environmental Health) plus a FOI to Homes England asking the obvious question re the site's land quality re soil contamination might throw light on your concerns. Simultaneously asking Homes England for a copy of Final Validation of successful remediation of any soil contamination.
This is 3rd year thousands of existing residents have complained of airborne site dust. A Wates P.R. flyer says it hopes the Sales House will be complete end summer. You might be interested to read the independent National Audit Office's Report recently published on Homes England's housebuilding.
Thanks for posting your FOI via this public website - you might be interested to read mine. Very much hope you insist the replies are publicly posted on this website, in an easily accessible Word/Pdf format and NOT using an offline vanishing within 7 days data base. Regards.

Miranda Foster, Homes England
