An all star cast, featuring Ashley Brown as the then District Planning officer. Ian Kay, his sidekick henchman, as the Assistant District Planning Officer. David Phillips as the Chief Enforcement Officer, with a peculiar penchant for collecting hair samples from sinks. Derek Holness as the Chief Executive who retired on an enhanced pension for his part in the alleged conspiracy. Doug Moss as the planning and then policy officer for Wealden. Christine Nuttall, as the solicitor working with Victorio Scarpa, to bury the fictional, Victor von Woolfe, and hide the truth about the fictional historic building, water pumping station near Herstmonceux village, they knew all about in secret session, but decided not to admit, in conspiring to abuse the rights of the then owner. Which meant not following procedure, and lying the the Secretary of State and his planning Inspectors.
The all star cast also includes Trevor Scott as the head of legal services, who became the council's Chief Executive, presumably, instructing Alison Playle and Mike Wakeford. But why is Trevor Scott still chief executive? Probably, because nobody else in their right mind would get involved in such an allegedly corrupt local authority. Trevor Scott was involved in the negotiations including Daniel Goodwin and (then) Councillor Andrew Long, where this council would sweep a costs award under the table, and obtain consent for the historic building to be residentially occupied lawfully. But, it was not to be. The offer was simply a ruse. The moment an engagement to a Masonic cabinet member was called off, The deal was called off. That was when they decided to frame Victor von Woolfe for a crime he did not commit. The object being the bury their adversary. With Sussex police being only too willing to soil their hands again.
The lady was advised as to the inaccurate information she was providing, then took advice from her colleagues, and bosses. When it appears and is alleged, that she decided to tow the party line. She was thus bribed to keep her mouth shut and not blow the whistle. In doing so, she accepted her wages or salary in return for becoming party to the conspiracy to bury the truth about her council's vendetta, institutionalised discrimination and misconduct in public office.
Knowing of the conspiracy to cause loss, which constitutes fraud under the Fraud Act of 2006, as in failing to do something they are required to do, knowing that in not fulfilling their function, they are causing loss, or potentially causing loss.
The refusal to correctly name the premises, has caused demonstrable harm, in that postal services and other deliveries have been unduly delayed, when the delivery drivers could not find the address of the premises on the Register that is supposed to be maintained by Wealden District Council free of obstruction. Oh dear. It is not too late for Alison to blow the whistle, as she is encouraged to do, under the new Economic Development and Transparency legislation enacted in December 2023. This new law beefs up protections for staff who raise concerns directly with the Whistleblowing Commission. In an effort to combat corporate fraud.
Cases like this tend to support the introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to replace administrative functions that should be free of bias.
Some local authorities in the United Kingdom are notoriously corrupt. The Wealden District Council has been identified as one of the worst, because of its appalling human rights record, lack of accountability & transparency, and almost total lack of genuinely affordable housing.
The idea being to make officers and councillors representing renting landlords, as rich as possible, in as short a time as possible. Also, with enhanced pension packages, including paying heating bills for staff working from home at the rate (tax) payer's expense, well past the Covid fiasco that saw procurement fraud rise to astronomical levels, along with the National Debt. Including council's borrowing more than they can afford to repay, generating a spiral, where the ordinary working person is taxed more, and cannot afford to live. With councils neglecting to build genuinely affordable housing, to assuage parliamentary landlords. Despite the cost of housing the homeless in temporary accommodation - again - at the taxpayers expense.
Until such matters are dealt with, the UK is held to be "up shit creek without a paddle."
You might care too agree, the so-called "planning" departments in many councils, could not organise a piss-up, in a brewery. The problem being that no political party, and certainly no British Prime Minister in recent years, appears to have had the stomach to rout out corruption. More the opposite, with the likes of Tony Blair, Lord David Cameron and Boris Johnson, the only hope being the fictional character Honest Edward John Thomas. Otherwise known as 'Honest Johnson.'
Incompatibility in Human Rights terms, is where one statute does not comply with HR statute. The European Convention does include Article 13, the right to an effective remedy.
WEALDEN DISTRICT COUNCIL - CAST OF CHARACTERS
The United Kingdom does not yet have a Written Constitution, leaving the justice system open to abuse via the honours system. [R v Sussex Justices 1924] Without justice being available to the ordinary man in the street, fairly, impartially and affordably, Britain can never truly be great again, or hold it's head high on the international stage.
