Please could you provide details of the subsidence investigations at Manchester Road Park, Stockport. When did subsidence first appear to be a problem, what investigations did you carry out and what do you believe the cause is?

Dear Ms Nicholson
I write further to your request for information sent via the
Whatdotheyknow website as included below.
Unfortunately we are still endeavouring to locate the subsidence incident
you are referring to in your request.
Please could we trouble you to provide us with more information on this
both in relation to the exact location of the incident, and what the
subsidence was in connection with. For example if you are able to provide
us with the exact location on Manchester Park Road, such as a property
address including postcode. We would also find it helpful if you could
identify the nature of the subsidence eg was this a collapsed sewer, piece
of land, building (if so which one) ?.
Any further detail you are able to provide would greatly assist us in
locating the information you require.
I look forward to hearing from you further in order to progress this.

Dear Rajat Jain,
I am afraid that I have no knowledge of the exact location of the reported subsidence in Manchester Road Park or what it was connected with. The only information that I have is from your notice on the park gates. It says 'Following a report of subsidence in the Park area, we completed investigation work on the sewer network and found a defect on a section of pipe work which requires an excavation to repair.'
You will have records of the 'report of subsidence in the Park area', who made it and when, so it will be a matter of consulting your records.
Dear Jain, Rajat,
I am afraid that I do not have any of that information. Since United Utilities referred to a 'report of subsidence in the park area' in their notice on the park gates about their repair to the sewer, United Utilities should have had details of this original report. Please consult your organisation for details as I have nothing more than the information contained in your notice.
