It will come as no surprise to you that I am writing to you about the remarks you made at the ‘Save Our Homes’ event last Saturday at Osterley Hotel.
During your speech you claimed that Members from the coalition groups are putting pressure on Officers in the Planning Enforcement team to go after people.
Please answer the following questions:
1. How does this pressure manifest itself and what evidence do you have for this taking place?
2. Do you have a problem with any of the successful prosecutions that were instigated by LBH against those who did not comply with enforcement notices? If you do, which ones?
3. More generally, you and I listened to the concerns expressed by those who attended the event. What changes, if any, do you believe need to be made?
I look forward to hearing from you.
