Monday 8th I have an issue with highway verges at the moment and decide to ask a few questions. Mainly,”why hasn’t my previous enquiry of one year ago, been dealt with?
Email from the highway engineer, they muddled two different enquiries!
Highway engineer sends me a few maps but still doesn’t answer the question.
Tuesday 9th I get a couple of emails from customer services who seem to be passing them forwards and backwards to different people, eventually ending back with Highways.
Wednesday 10th. Ah, i’ve been sent on to the boundaries team! That should do it then!
Thursday 11th. Unfortunately ‘boundaries’ seem to have their own problems and are obsessed with ‘green hatching’ ,’dashed ines’ and ‘colouring in’
Friday 12th. I ascertain that…….
1.Highways can’t ‘assume’ anything.
2. They don’t have any documents.
3. If they did have any documents they are now superseded.
4. If they had any information in the first place it’s now no longer available anyway.
To round off Friday nicely I hear from my advisor that NCC have decided to ignore all law, common sense, duty to the public purse and expert opinion to boldly carry through their flawed order.
This is going to be most interesting. Hang on to your hats!!!
