Whitelass House and
Hambleton District Council - Latest

Whitelass House

Thankyou for visiting these pages. Their subjects are complaints to Hambleton District Council for maladministration of planning applications; tree preservation orders and a planning appeal relating to, the now burnt out, Whitelass House.

You might feel Hambleton were justified, lying to planning appeal, and that the Whitelass House landmark is an important achievement for the Council. If so, let's work together to publicise and celebrate it.

Otherwise, perhaps bear in mind my family have lost a house - my childhood home. We had to stand by helplessly as it was torn apart by vandals and vagabonds. Ultimately I had to watch it burn out.

Hambleton think the answer is a fifth, expensive and identical planning application to remove the occupancy condition - in identical circumstances. If a new application will succeed, what was wrong with the first four, or with the appeal?

Why did Hambleton's senior officers repeatedly lying to cover up the way they selected a stone road for a tree preservation order at Whitelass House?

How much more scarce public time and money will officers squander covering up their disasterous record?

Please find some time to read these pages, or speak to me (01845 522604 (day) or 07946 466428 (mobile)), and consider the complaints.
