Exposing LEICESTER CITY COUNCIL

On Friday (just gone) A letter from LCC arrived regarding two previous letters which had been sent over the last three months in relation to a 2nd property.

The two previous letters one in November and one in January were nothing more than an observation of the vacant property and an information sheet offering any 'help' the COUNCIL could offer by way of building services and 'Registered local Contractors' who could help to restore and subsiquently either sell or rent out the property under the guise of 'helping to find homes for the people of Leicester'.

I disregarded both letters as the services on offer were neither needed or wanted and there was no indication that a reply was required.

The letter which arrived on Friday just gone was headed 'EMPTY HOMES STRATEGY'

The letter is blatantly a threat, and is now referring to the 'case' being of 'concern' and 'further action' may be necessary including COMPULSORY PURCHASE of the property.

The documents include the EMPTY HOMES STRATEGY page, a LOCAL GOVERNMENT (MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS) ACT 1976 LEICESTERSHIRE ACT 1985 form to fill in....an EMPTY HOMES TEAM: STATEMENT OF INTENTIONS form to fill in and a LEICESTER HOUSING private sector compulsory purchase notes page.

All stating they MUST be filled in and returned within 14 DAYS OR ELSE!!

Rediculous.

So once I'd calmed down and stopped spitting flames at the council I constructed my reply........

I wonder if you'd care to check through my reply Veronica? And guide me if you think anything else is needed.

I'm also very happy to publish all correspondence here once the 'case' has been settled.

If it smells like a rat, and looks like a rat, and acts like a rat, then it is a rat.

It'll be interesting to see what the rats turn up in response to your letter.

Freedom of Information request "Who the f--k actually are YOU?" seems appropriate?
