    • I feel that people are focusing too much on the OPs property being a council house and putting responsibility on the council to resolve this.   imagine for a moment that the OPs house is privately owned, now what powers would they have to take action on the trees? Pretty much none without taking the tree owner to court right. Well as the trees are privately owned, that is the same power that the council have right now.   the information with the £375 will be inline with high hedges legislation as this will be the only power the council will have and it is common for there to be a charge for this.   this is not a social housing issue, but a neighbor dispute with a private homeowner.   i used to work as a tree officer for a local authority and from experience have seen that people’s idea of dangerous and what is actually dangerous are two different issues. A councils power to enforce tree works are also limited and will usually only be where a private tree poses a risk to the highway, not to another property as that is a civil matter (even where the council own the 2nd property).    With regards to risk to underground pipes, this is something you will be unlikely to successfully argue as various studies have found that unless a tree is planted on top of the pipe and crush it, the roots will not cause damage, but rather only enter through already damaged areas as they are opportunistic, any tree roots in drains are usually a secondary issue where a pipe had existing damage and to resolve it will require a permanent repair to the pipe to prevent recurrence.   the only options i see here are to calculate the height allowed under high hedges legislation (it varies depending on what direction the property faces , the location of hedges etc) and try to enforce that which will involve the fee. Otherwise there is little you can do as the private homeowner has a right to have trees in their garden although they may be liable if they were to cause damage to your property (such as a shed) or the councils property in the future.
    • Served on 16 Feb.   On reviewing the MCOL website today for an updated, I noticed that 1) Hermes has aknowledged the claim, but not yet filed a defence, and 2) that I there was a glitch / error on the form. Essentially, it looks like I had accidentally left the "I will send detailed particulars of claim" box ticke (I thought I had unticked it), with the result that the claim section has been truncated, and some extra text has automatcially been added - in red below):   "...Claimant seeks £XXX, plus I will provide the defendant with separate detailed particulars within 14 days after service of the claim form. The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of..."   This is obviously not ideal. Is it better to try to amend the claim somehow, or to just submit a brief POC that a) clarifies that I am seeking £XXX plus costs (which was automatically truncated), and b) sets out my calculation of the £XXX?  
    • Hi   It amazes me how they pass the buck as they don't want to deal with a private homeowner but if the shoe was on the other foot they would be hammering down on you for breach of tenancy.   As this is council housing you need to make a Formal Complaint in writing to the Council Housing about this (as a social housing landlord they have a complaints process they have to follow). you need to exhaust their complaints process. Make sure and title your letter Formal Complaint.   From what you have posted this tree is not just a nuisance but also a Health & Safety risk:   1. The tree being overgrown is now a danger to the occupants/Guest/Visitors to your property   2. The tree has overgrown into the Council Housings Boundaries your property causing damage/endangerment to the occupants/guest/visitors.   3. As the roots of the tree are also overgrown into your property you have concerns that these may be causing/damaging to any underground pipework that may be within the boundray of the property.   4. So far the Councils actions have been to treat their Council Housing tenant as a third class citizen with a private homeowner aloud to cause endangerment/possible damage due to these overgrown trees which are encroaching on your council house property/bounderies.   You also require clarification why you were sent the Healthy Neighbourhood Information which states I have to pay £375 to make a complaint. (make sure and attach a copy of the response that states this cost)   You also require copies of the following:   1. Complaints Policy (not the leaflet) 2. Customer Service Standard (not the leaflet) 3. Health & Safety Policy (not the leaflet) 4. Public Liability Insurance Policy. (not the leaflet) 5. Clarification from you if their is any underground pipeworks running through the bounderies within the garden area (you should have full knowledge of this it being your property/plans) 6. Compensation Policy (not the leaaflet) 7. Equality & Diversity Policy (not the leaflet)   When you get the above policies sit with a pen/pencil/highlighter and take you time reading them and just think to yourself 'DID THEY DO THAT' if not mark it then leave it for a while then do the same again this way you can basically throw/write back stating the haven't followed x policy with which part of that policy and your reason. (you are building evidence to use against them using their own policies. I would also like to refer you to The Local Government (Miscellaneous Provision) Act 1976: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1976/57/part/I/crossheading/dangerous-trees-and-excavations     You need to remember yes it is the Council but the Council Housing is a separate entity and is a Registered Social Landlord (RSL)   Is the Council Housing classed as a registered Charity? (what is their registration number whether charity or RSL?)   Also have a wee look at this CAG link:     
    • @rocky_sharma   Fame at last!!   Dunno how much help it would be in your case, but I could try digging out the txt of my defence if you think it might be relevant to your defence. We might hafta do this via PM, then e-mail though if ya wanna go down that route.   Good luck with yours anyway mate.

On successful election as PM OR NOT and after illegally leaving the EU, The Tories will poison 99%  the population so they can frack to their hearts content without interference

They will keep the other 1% as slaves.

 The whole thread is utter bollox with all your claims that the Tories will do this and Johnson will do that.

You are a typical undemocratic Lefty remoaner  who is throwing his toys out of the pram because you can't get your own way.

" The EU doesn’t have the legal power to act in this area unless member governments actively give their permission. "

 

" “common defence” will only come about “when the European Council, acting unanimously, so decides”. Unlike in other areas of EU decision-making, the European Commission can’t propose laws about security and defence, and any decisions in these areas must be made unanimously. "

 

" UK law also states that no such common EU defence powers can be handed from the UK to the EU without the approval of parliament and a referendum on the decision. So the government would need the support of both the public and MPs before they could make such a decision. "

 

 

Now your turn to prove what I said was false

The proof is that EU and UK Law prevents it.

 

 

Now you prove what I said is wrong

Johnsone has proven he will break the law

He proven he's morally bankrupt

Fracking is an abomination pressed against local communities wishes

 

 

Now you prove what I said isn't true

“There is non so blind as those who do not wish to see!”

Maherg1 it does not matter what you say on this forum

they laugh at you as being stupid and not knowing what

you are talking about, as they say the chickens will one

day come home to roost, and then they will be laughing

on the other side of their faces. He who laughs last

laughs longest, but their wont be anything to laugh at, if

we continue to be subservient to this undemocratic club.

 

A little poem to sum it up:- A Brexit Rhyme  

 Won’t you join our Common

Market? said the Spider to

the Fly,
It really is a winner and the cost is not too high,

I know De Gaulle said “Non”, but he hadn’t got a clue,
We want you in, my friends and I, for we have plans for you.

You’ll have to pay a little more than we do, just for now,
As Herr Kohl said, and I agree, we need a new milch cow.

It’s just a continental term believe me, mon ami,
Like “Vive la France” or “Mad Anglais” or even “E.E.C.”

As to the rules, don’t worry friend, there’s really but a few,
You’ll find that we ignore them – but they all apply to you!

Give and share between us, that’s what it’s all about
You do all the giving, and we all share it out.

It’s very British, is it not, to help a friend in need?
You’ve done it twice in two World Wars, a fact we must concede,

So climb aboard the Market Train, don’t sit there on the side,

Your continental cousins want to

take you for a ride.

Oh, if some nutter who happens to be in the house of Lords says it - so its true,

despite the laws of the EU and UK refuting it

 

err Nope

 

Johnson is PM - I don't believe a word he says,

... because he is REPEATEDLY demonstrated to be a liar.

 

I don't believe what that nutter you quote says - because its complete hogwash - as I have demonstrated

There are nutters on here claiming their posts are true and non more so than a certain tobyjug.  

 

Why won't you ever answer a question and just debate, why do you always have to be so rude because someone speaks out against you ?

I may not always agree with everything Tobyjugg says but they do make valid arguments and not just bad cut n paste unsupported rubbish that has no basis in fact. 
 

I have to say, an EU army maybe a good thing if NATO fails as it might just. It’s not about waging war it’s about preventing. The European project, favoured by Churchill has kept peace in Europe. It is the rise of Nationalism and little Englanders who could end that

We have for centuries run joint military operations with other nations and groups of nations.

Operations with the EU are no different,

and are in fact far more desirable and necessary given the undermining of NATO by Trump,

but we still work with NATO, the UN, the USA as well as the EU and many many others - including to our shame Saudi Arabia.

 

 

That rant by the kippers was  utterly ridiculous.

Still - they've got their big letters up in the thread. Best win they could get without real facts.

1. Did the nation vote to leave the EU or not ?

2. Are Labour opposing that ?

3. Is Labour calling for another referendum ?

4. Is labour going to negotiate a new Brexit deal, (even though they don't know what the present one is), and put it to the people in a referendum

and then campaign against the deal they have just negotiated ?
