Secretary of State writes to Chief Lord Justice Lord Thomas

Secretary of State writes to Chief Lord Justice Lord Thomas
22nd August 2016

The Charity received a wonderful letter in the post today stating that our MP Amber Rudd, The Secretary of State has written to Lord Thomas the Chief Lord Justice in regard to  the missing underpinning documents from the Hastings Development Plan. These should have been legally available after the Consultation for the Main Modifications. It is known that Rothers’ Examination Report is correct and was written by the Planning Inspector. Hastings Borough Council document was written by someone in the Council at the time. The Charity has been concerned that the lack of the underpinning Examination Report makes the Development Plan Unsound. This is concerning as the Borough makes Green Space areas which the Council state are protected. It also questions why this process failed and why the Inspector does not seem to have supplied Hastings with an Examination Report when it has supplied one for Rother District Council.

The Charity have been working for over two and a half years to get a Legal Decision from the Freedom of Information Act  2000, The Information Commissioner , Three First Tier Tribunal Service  GRP & GRS Tribunal , The Judicial Appointments and Conduct Ombudsman and now the Chief Lord Justice. A spiral bound report has been prepared by the Hastings Badger Protection Society Directors and Friends of Speckled Wood Management Trust to ensure this matter is properly dealt with. The Charity has been fighting to save Speckled Wood since 2012. The Charity was set up when other groups would not provide an electronic consultation for the public. Over 7000 Reponses were sent in to the Council from the Charity in an attempt to Save Speckled Wood.  The Charity used skips to remove dangerous rusting metal work and rubbish from the site over two years in 2013 in an attempt to clean the area up for the children who play there.
