01 May 2009 Steam and Painting Phase 2

Posted by Micro Update Ltd on May 2, 2009

Communications concerning recent steam emissions, (including new one’s from the big chimney stack), and request for a schedule of commencement of Phase 2 painting (chimney and roof), have been made between myself, Cllr. G Hook and the Management of Sunlight.

The recent large steam emissions were due to a “Safety Survey which required a test”. No notification of this was made to us prior to the test as was agreed to happen at our meeting with the Management. It transpires that Chris Foulkes is now in the IOW and a new manager is in charge over at the Blot. Hopefully new lines of communications will be made to avoid this happening in the future.

As soon as we are notified of a date for commencing painting it will be posted here and directly to those people that have submitted their email address for direct contact.


from Cllr Hook 01May09:-


I have followed up your concerns re stack and hope attached is self explanatory.

F.a.o. Councillor Hook


I refer to your recent enquiry to David Eaton about the use of the stack at CLS.


I have checked the planning permission (reference 1998/2513/01/3) for the building and there is no conditions relating to the use of the stack. Should you wish to discuss this then please do not hesitate to contact me next week.

Email to councillor Hook

Dear Cllr Hook,

You will be aware by now of the ?communications? that resident Mr Garner has had directly with CLS. Their attitude is overbearing and stinks. They are not above the law and are now showing contempt for the system (such as it is) and taxpayers, which we have to rely on to gain some some minimal fair play.

I always copy my emails to all residents and also to the Leader of TDC and the Chief Executive. Neither of these 2 ever reply or acknowledge.

Would you please personally draw their attention to the CLS debacle as a whole. It is a festering matter that is not getting due attention from the lower echelons of the Council (yourself exclude of course), and bit by bit we residents are being dumped on.

Thank you in advance.

Les Edgecumbe.
