 Moleman - what the council says

Freedom of Information enquiry re 121 Mortimer Road, N1

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information Act enquiry about 121 Mortimer Road N1.

 

As you may be aware the condition and structure of this property have been and are the subject of legal proceedings which are on going and as such the information and documents you have requested in the first two points of your request for information are legally privileged and therefore exempt from disclosure under section 42 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. We can however tell you the following:

 

Hackney Council’s Highways team have taken legal action against the occupier of 121 Mortimer Road (Mr Lyttle) in 2001.  Here is a brief chronology of the legal milestones in that case:

In addition to the Highways team’s action, the Council’s Building Control team tried to take action in 2004 as listed below but were unsuccessful.

The total cost of both these proceedings has been estimated to be in excess of £10,000.

 

With regard to the third point of your enquiry the law states that within a conservation area any development should either preserve or enhance the character or appearance of the conservation area. The legislation relating to Conservation areas does not place any other “requirement” on properties in a conservation area.  As 121 Mortimer Road has not been developed there the conservation development would not apply and therefore the Council can take no action via this route.

 

There is qualified requirement under the Town and Country Planning General Development Order 1988 for consent to be obtained for any minor alterations to be made to a property. No such consents have been given.

 

Regarding the fourth point of your enquiry as to whether the Council has any future plans to manage the dilapidation and disrepair of 121 Mortimer Road ,

the Council’s Building Control Team have received one complaint regarding self- neglect which covers disrepair and pest control issues which they intend to act upon.

 

The Course of action they intend to follow in dealing with the complaint is

Finally in relation to the fifth point of your enquiry about dealing with complaints apart from the one mentioned above we do not have any record of other formal complaints made about this property.

 

I hope this satisfactorily deals with your enquiry

 

Yours sincerely
