Dear Liverpool City Council,
Tony Reeves, Liverpool city Chief Executive
Reach PLC London
Will your council supply any details of the past so-called investigations by these three reporters?
Liam Thorp - Executive Political Editor
Joe Thomas - Executive Crime Reporter
Alistair Houghton - Executive Business Editor
Did in the past 12 months, any of these reporters ever put in any FOI’s into the dealing of:
Lin Mari group
Fox street village developments
Primesite – Kerry Tomlinson and his involvement into fox street village
Why is there still an outstanding fee of close to £987,000, due to the city of Liverpool council from this project?
Has the city of Liverpool council received any requests from any reporter into this nightmare of ‘Fox street village or asked your office and planning officers for any and all records going back to 2016?
Can the city of Liverpool council show any incoming e-mails from this local newspaper that could prove the paper was indeed investigating fox street village.
Why has the underground 160 car park gone missing from this project and is there full planning permission from 2016 on all the building A, B, C, D, how could an underground 160 car park just go missing and the Liverpool echo could not find it or even too lazy to ask your office or told not to ask? The planning officers, and they also had missed the £900,000 due to the Liverpool city council.
Will the city of Liverpool supply all details as to why Block A is now a hotel and in the planning was this down as student accommodation?
Please see the FOI reply from MFRS.
“Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service conducted an audit of Block A on 20.07.18 and discovered that it was being used as a hotel. An enforcement notice (EM/MERS/397) was issued thereafter. The notice was complied with and so it was withdrawn”.
Will the Council supply the following information on Block A.
[a] In total since Block [A] has been completed how many flats or persons are paying council tax and was Block [A] down in the planning application as only “Student accommodation” and not as a hotel and why did Liam Thorp, blank this intelligence or pass it over to another reporter, Has Liam Thorp a “conflict of interest” due to his relationship with “Danial Hughes and Hughes PR?
Did the city of Liverpool know that Gary Howard was using Hughes PR as his front along with an ex-echo reporter, and Cllr Calvert who has now gone into hiding over this, and Liam Throp who was told to investigate this project along with other echo reporters from last year?
Yet no real facts have come out from this newspaper and why is it covering for Hughes PR and Cllr Calvert?
References: It was the Merseyside Fire & Rescue Authority, not the Liverpool Echo, who got this out in the open, as did ITV Granada reports and members of the public.
The echo had had a full one year to investigate fox street village and decided to blank it, Fact!
Statement provided to the Liverpool Echo 3rd April 2019
A Merseyside Fire & Rescue Authority spokesperson said: “Merseyside Fire & Rescue Authority (MFRA) has been working with Liverpool City Council (LCC) as part of our ongoing work with High Rise Residential premises following the Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017. This work has included inspections of the buildings in Fox Street Village. Concerns have been identified with a specific block which requires improvements to fire safety standards.
