S106 Monies (FOI-5790)
Dear ***** *****
Re: Freedom of Information Request.
Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, received 8 April 2020. Your request has been considered and our response is in bold below.
You requested the following:
I"m writing to you regarding the construction site opposite our building, Bridge House II; we have been subjected to constant noise and disruption for the past 2 year, they have been using our car park for personal use, and up to 4 cars recently. the dust has settled everywhere, form window sills to the car park floor and the pavements adjacent to both Brooklime and Chervil House have several broken and unstable slabs that need replacing.
This is a gentle reminder that:
Mulalley promised in the very beginning to clean windows and car park after completion, but so far no communication has been started from their part to do so, could you follow up on that please?
Because of the heavy machinery and constant traffic of trucks parking on the pavement, several slabs are broken: can they fix that please?
I"m attaching some photos of trucks on pavement to prove that it has been them to break them and they should fix it.
And to finish, can I please, under the freedom of information act, request information on how the SO106 money has been distributed?
so far we, the residents have seen any of it, and we think that some compensation or at least the above points completed and a hefty donation for the residents to have a street party after normality is restored is the minimum, Mulalley and the Council can do.
