    • @Jaybee in CF Claimant commitments are agreed between yourself and the Job Centre Work Coach.  So you will be able to discuss the local jobs market, transport available and all of the local issues.   As it is a two way constructive relationship, you can research all of the relevant information, so when you have your claimant commitment agreed,  the information you have obtained can be considered.              
    • look up on land registry who owns the property then get in contact with your local environmental heath dept.   dx  
    • Hello all,   I have recently moved into a new property. The bedroom window is facing a bunch of commercial crates which have trash on top of them. The trash is maybe two metres away from the window, making it impossible for the window to be open (I am also afraid of rats being there).   The other windows of the property are facing a communal, enclosed area, which is making it difficult for the property to be properly ventilated. I have already raised this issue with my estate agency and they are trying do to something about it (to be honest, if I leave everything to them, this issue won't be solved until my tenancy is finished, and that is more than one year away).   I am asking for advice, or how could I approach this issue.   I have spoken to my council and, since they do not deal in private property, there is nothing they can do, at least this is what they have told me.   The property with the trash is not owned by my landlord. It is an open space, with big crates, closed off by a fence. If I could, I would climb those crates and remove the trash myself but I cannot. I also cannot climb out the window to reach the trash, as the window is too small.   At times, I see a car in that property but I have never seen the driver. I left a note in the car's window explaining the issue and giving my number. This was around a week ago and nobody came back to me.   
    • Hi   First off ALL Tenants need to re report all the different repairs again via their repairs procedure. Yes its good to get a list of all properties repairs with photo/video evidence signed by all property tenants but you all need to fight this individually as well as a group.   Next you all need to look up your rights on Repair i.e. The Right to Repair Scheme and also their Complaints Procedure.   http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1994/133/made   https://england.shelter.org.uk/housing_advice/repairs/right_to_repair_for_council_tenants   All Tenants need to take control back with these repair and ask in writing titling any letter 'FORMAL COMPLAINT' and stating the repair and why it hasn't been carried out to date and an exact date when it will be completed.   You also require clarification whether these Repairs come under the Right to Repair Scheme and if so why we were never informed of this. (delete or amend)   You also require copies of the following:   Right to Repair Scheme Policy (Not the Leaflet Repair and Maintenance Policy (Not the Leaflet) Solar Panel Policy (Not the Leaflet) Complaints Policy (Not the Leaflet) Equality & Diversity Policy (Not the Leaflet) When you get the above policies you need to take your time reading them and just think to yourself 'DID THEY DO THAT' in relation to your issue and if not mark it this way you build a list of what they haven't done/followed as per there own Policies and use it against them.   They will have time limits to complete repairs within for Emergency, Urgent, Routine repairs and if they exceed that time limit and need to extend it remember it is with you the tenants agreement not them telling you and tough you can wait.   (bear in mind any repairs during COVID-19 the time limits are now different and most routine repairs are stopped)  
    • I was on UC in late March, and recently received some quite non-committal message that the commitments would be returning, but no indication when.     If I remember correctly the expectation was that we could find at least one job per day to which to apply, or some such nonsense.   Given that the government can only guess how many workplaces will be safe :  1) to commute to/from at the time of job application; 2) to work in at the time of job application;    3) to commute to/from at the date of starting a job ; 4) to work in at the date of starting a job,  5) to commute to/from at the date permanent WFH is dropped; 6) to work in at the date permanent WFH is dropped,    and given that we have lost 20% of our economy, I fail to see how they can both reasonably and immediately mandate any minimum figure of jobs we must apply for whilst this virus just killed over 135 people in the UK (stats released today).  That is only down from 155 last week, and about 175 a fortnight back.   At this rate it will be another 7 weeks MINIMUM before the mortality rate is zero - if it ever reaches zero before the inevitable second wave.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Tory in new disabled bay row

 

 

A driver was forced to walk 200 yards on crutches after a senior councillor parked his car in a space reserved for the disabled for the second time in a week.

Furious Blue Badge holder Joe Dorrian contacted the Medway Messenger after we revealed that three senior Medway Tory councillors had parked in disabled bays at the council’s Gun Wharf headquarters in Chatham.

One of them was Cllr Tom Mason, the portfolio holder responsible for Medway’s disabled.

Cllr Mason, pictured, said it was raining and the council offices were closed, insisting it was the first time he had parked there.

But, just five days earlier, Cllr Mason had parked his red Jaguar in the same disabled bay at 10am on a working day, blocking a space Mr Dorrian would have used to save him a long walk.

And Mr Dorrian has the photographic evidence.

Cllr Mason has apologised but is now facing calls for his resignation.

Why is it ok to for forum members to abuse PPC parking and disabled bays on private property and supermarket car parks but suddenly its not ok for a Councillor to do it? Surely you should be applauding his stand against these unenforceable bays?

I'll never applaud a publicly elected official who has no consideration for people who have disabilities. It is not relevant that the bay is not legally enforceable, it is relevant that someone who should not park there, does. If that person happens to be an elected official then they deserve all the critisim they get.

I don't agree with their actions just think some board members should not have double standards. One day these type of bays are 'meaningless graffitti' then the next its a capital offence to park in one. :rolleyes:

I don't have double standards. You will never see me endorse anyone parking in a disabled bay unless they are entitled. The disabled bays, enforceable or not, are there for disabled persons to use. It is utterly wrong that an able bodied person should use one at the expense of a disabled person who then has a difficult and possibly dangerous journey across a busy car park.

With respect G&M, I believe you are are missing the point of the thread & being somewhat unfair to the majority of forum members.

I certainly wouldn't condone this selfishness in anyone, be it on private or public land.

 

Perhaps the good councillor should be issued with a parking charge notice & come to the forum for advice - then we would see exactly how much sympathy he & others like him would really receive.

Green & Mean wasn't defending the "parking trade" in any way.

 

He was simply pointing out - and I agree with him on this occasion - that it is oft-quoted on here that disabled bay markings in a private car park are nothing more than graffiti and that it is a bit hypocritical for those who support such a stance should then castigate someone - however much in the public eye - for ignoring such graffiti.

I agree, if Councillor Mason had received a ticket and asked anonymously for advice here, the tone of this thread would have been completely different

Has there been any confirmation whether the car park is regulated by a TRO?

Just because they think they are higher then us, they think they can do what they want, its disgusting.

 

A number of years ago i recall a MP parking in a disabled bay, at my local chinese restaurant, he used the excuse there was no where else to park !

You are correct in saying this. What you must remember he is the portfolio holder for the disabled. Also he did this @ 10 oclock on a working weekday morning. Had this been anybody else the they would have had enforcement action taken against them.

Legally they are meaningless grafitti, but nobody here condones abusing them. It's a selfish, inconsiderate action, but so is giving out threatening paperwork and bombarding people with letters for weeks.

No it wouldn't. We've seen plenty of idiotic cases, which usually result in posts saying "your parking is truly shocking, but legally these are the facts..."

 

Advice is given to everyone. Since when have defence lawyers turned down clients because they don't 'deserve' to be helped?

Have the bays got a traffic order then, surely being yellow would make enforcement tricky?
