Letter sent to "Reviewer" in January, still awaiting a response.?

Dear Alyson Carman,

Friday 7 January 2011.

Dear Alyson Carman,
Reviewer of Freedom of Information Requests.
It is now several months since I wrote in reply to you, ( delay due
to illness ) objecting to your review of my freedom of Information
request , were I was asking for copies of all documents
particularly Certificates of Ownership, “A” and “B” that Hartlepool
Council Planning claimed to have been scrutinised to establish and
“VALIDATE” the true ownership of the disputed Land and Property
before granting the Controversial Retrospective Planning
Application H / 2009 / 0568 .These documents were refused by Hayley
Martin and again by you the Reviewing Authority.

My allegations of a “Conflict of Interest “ in that you personally
would be unable to give a unbiased decision was based on my
knowledge that you were personally aware that we Alan Harvey
Flounders and Jacqueline Flounders were and still are the sole “
ABSOLUTE” legal owners of “ALL” Land and property detailed and
registered and recorded with Land Registry, Durham on 29th March
1984. On Land Title Documents CE 74844 copies of these Legal Land
Title Documents where given to you in person by me, in your office,
in December 2008 and again in January 2009. and therefore I
maintain, that you were fully aware that these original legal Land
Title Deeds CE 74844, and other documents where issued and signed
by your own Legal Departments Chief Solicitor, J Anthony Brown, in
addition to our redemption payment of mortgage, acknowledged by
J.D. Walton I.P.F.A. Chief Financial Officer, when we purchased the
said property from Hartlepool Council on 1st February 1984.

It is my understanding from my solicitor, that when the Land
Registry registers a particular piece of freehold land for the
first time it will give it one of three (3 ) “classes” of title.
These are :- 1.Absolute 2.Qualified, 3.Posssessory

“ Absolute “ is the best class to have as it is “indefeasible,”
i.e. once it is granted the proprietor is recognised as the
“absolute owner” and no one can challenge his ownership, even if it
appears that a person may have a genuine claim to the land.”
Land Title Deeds CE 74844 Title Absolute, clearly shows EXACTLY
what Property and Land Details we PURCHASED when buying our Council
House from you, Hartlepool Borough Council, in February 1984,

Our Land Title Deeds were confirmed and signed by Hartlepool
Councils, Chief Solicitor J Anthony Brown, and our Solicitors
Levinson, Walker and Lister, our Receipt for our MORGAGE Redemption
Final Payment was Signed by Hartlepool Borough Councils Chief
Financial Officer Mr. J.D. WALTON, ( which we still Possess )

Your Legal Department are aware of all this, yet your Legal
Department ( to whom both you and Hayley Martin are part of )
allowed Certificate s of Property Ownership "A" "B" to be submitted
for “VALIDATION” of property ownership for a Retrospective Planning
Application ( previously built “Without “ planning permission “ to
the planning authority, which was granted by Mr Reece and Richard
Trow, without any input of the Elected Councillors or without any
serious attempt to “ENSURE” that the applicant was the Legal owner
of the said land and property, Hartlepool Council Officials Mr
Richard Trow was also aware of our ownership, ( after his home
visit to take Photographs ) whoever submitted certificates “A” and
“B” did so in an attempt to deprive us of our Legally Purchased
Land and Property.

An examination of our Land Title Deeds CE 74844, which you were
well aware of, after examining them in December/January 2008/2009.
in addition to Richard Trow, Planning Officer, and your enforcement
officer Paul Burgon, who also examined our title deeds after his
visits, would have clarified the property dispute immediately . ?

Under the circumstances , Hartlepool Councils total failure to make
any attempt to resolve this property dispute , leaves us with no
alterative but to seek redress in law, We therefore give you
immediate notice that we intend to commence legal proceedings
against Hartlepool Council and the named Council Officers. I will
be asking the Court for Hartlepool Council and all Officials named
to produce and supply me will copies of all Documents we have
previously requested and any and all documents you possess to
disprove of entitlement of Land and Property Ownership. I still
posses all E-Mails and other letters which promised action but
failed to enforce
Yours Sincerely
Alan Harvey Flounders
Copies to,
Hayley Martin, F.O.I. Officer
Mr Reece, Planning,
Richard Trow, Planning
Gill Scanlon,
Paul Burgon, Enforcement Officer.
Stuart Green
Liz Crookson

Yours sincerely,

alan harvey flounders

Update of the Arrest of Independent Hartlepool Councillor

Like the majority of people from Hartlepool , I personally was utterly bewildered and shocked , when it was announced in February 2011, that a well know and in some quarters, a very well respected Independent town councillor Geoff Lilley, ( who incidentally I have never met ) was arrested by Hartlepool Police and held in custody and questioned for some hours, regarding the allegations of cyber - bullying ? instigated by a fellow Councillor ( Labour ) Marjorie James. which were published on a very well known and greatly valued local political debating forum “High Tax Hartlepool” some of the posts are very interesting, well worth a look.

Without doubt this site H.T.H. has changed people awareness of local politics in Hartlepool and in my opinion it can only improve, without its voice there is no place to go ?

I like, many more Hartlepool Citizens, have been waiting patiently for the opportunity to visit a Court of Law, and personally witness one of the most spectacular events of the year in Hartlepool, the chance to hear about the political shenanigans and hanky-panky that rumour says happens on a weekly basis in Hartlepool Council.
Some even say, it resembles a rehearsal for a Christmas Pantomime , particularly in the Planning Department ?

This Cyber - Bullying case against the Independent Councillor Geoff Lilley has now been dropped, after the Crown Prosecution Service decided that, he had no case to answer, ?

If this decision pleases Councillor Geoff Lilley, then I am sincerely pleased for him, but I am personally a little disappointed that Councillor Geoff Lilley will not now be able to have his day in court, as he originally said he wanted.

I personally feel that his appearance, centre stage in court, would have guaranteed him pole position in the forthcoming local political elections.

I also believe, it would have been hilarious and a absolute nightmare for the prosecution to present their case, ? Something to do with ping - pong balls I believe ? And would have exposed to public view these arrogant, self-serving, hypocrites that they are.

Any normal person might have thought that Councillor Marjorie James (Labour ) would have been personally delighted that no further police action is to be taken over her allegations of Cyber-Bullying , but, evidently not,

it is reported that Councillor Marjorie James (Labour ) is said to be unhappy, deeply distressed and disappointed , that the Crown Prosecution Service have decided that the Independent Councillor Geoff Lilley
has no case to answer, in addition, she says, the advice received by the Crown Prosecution Service from the Hartlepool Police has not been successful in achieving the support she had hoped for. ?

Furthermore she is awaiting an “Explanation” from the Crown Prosecution Service, as to “Why” they are Not pursuing this matter further.?

One has to admire her audacity, or is it arrogance, some might even say ignorance, I leave others to decide ? but then she obviously feels she is a very Important and Influential Political Personality in Hartlepool, to ask the Crown Prosecution Service to give her a Personal explanation of their Legal Decisions ? I hope she receives a better response from the C.P.S. than I, a full council tax payer received from her colleagues on Hartlepool Council , particularly the Legal and Planning Departments,

I make no apologies in repeating, my own personal experience of my ONE ( 1 ) and ONLY Formal Complaint to Hartlepool Council ,I discovered that :-

Hartlepool Councils Complaints Procedure, is without doubt , a Total and Complete Shambles , a Utter Waste of Time, which was the reason I first started this very blog. the Dishonesty and Self Gratification and Incompetence of some Democratically Elected Hartlepool Councillors and most, if not all, the Unelected Council Officials , is mind blowing.

Obviously a complaint or a allegation of any Wrongdoing involving other Hartlepool Council Officers , is definitely , a non starter, considering, it's then a Hartlepool Council Officer investigating the alleged Misconduct of another Hartlepool Council Officer in Public Office, this is deceitful and dishonest. And I believe Criminal, (more to follow on this allegation ) In particular, :-

I find this attitude very distasteful and highly suspicious, after asking for a “Review “ of Hilary Martin’s ,the Solicitor and F.O.I. Officer, handling and refusal to produce for my inspection copies of ownership documents which would have proved the truth of my allegations of deception , to find that the “Reviewer “ was non other than Alyson Carman (who in turn is now the Legal Services Manager/Solicitor) and obviously a colleague of Hilary Martin who now holds the F.O.I. Office , the position formerly held by ( have a guess ) Alyson Carman,? This I believe is “Misfeasance in Public Office “
Needless to say, I am still awaiting a reply to my last letter in January 2011.?

I believe that some, but not all, of the present assembly of Democratically Elected Councillors , and Unelected Council Officers, now Masquerading as a “ Democratic Council.” do not wish the people of Hartlepool to be made aware of their wrongdoing and are terrified that their abuses of Misfeasance in Public who will eventually be exposed on sites such as High Tax Hartlepool,
