EQUAL RIGHTS AND JUSTICE BUT ONLY FOR A SPECIAL GROUP. Govt. to txpayer. Screw you!

All George Frost, the owner of three not very productive fields in Norfolk wanted, was a place where he could shelter from the rain and make a cup of tea.

So he asked his local council for permission to put a caravan on HIS land on the outskirts of the village of Carleton Rode.
Not one of the 727 villagers objected.

Unfortunately for him, however, his fields were in a ‘protected area’ under the local development plan, and his application was rejected.

Last year Mr Frost, now retired, sold the fields to John Leveridge, who applied to put six mobile homes and two tourinf caravans on the site.  At last weeks packed planning meeting of South Norfolk Council, 175 local people objected.

But Mr. Leveridge is a Romany gypsy. Even though he has lived for 11 years in a bungalow nearby, he told the meeting that he wanted to return to his traditional traveling ways.

South Norfolk planning officer Chris Trett said that according to govt. targets, there is an “inadequate supply of land for gypsies in the area, and the councillors were warned that discrimination against gypsies and Irish travelers is unlawful.

So although the fields remain protected, Mr. Leverdige’s application was passed by the council.


HOLD THE PHONE THERE BMEWS .... YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET.

Look at this poor guy.  Apologies for the photo reproduction. Best I could get from a scan of paper as the pix was not on line with the story.
Tis enuff to make a grown man cry. What the eF was the dumbassed council thinking?  Did anyone actually come out and look?
But anyway it’s all his fault because he is a member of the wrong ethnic group.

Home owner ordered to remove hot tub, pergola from garden
A home owner has been ordered to tear up £30,000 worth of renovations to his garden after his local council said the land was a protected meadow.

Martin Crosswait, 30, bought a five-bedroom, £450,000 house in 2006 which came with an acre of land. He then installed facilities including a hot tub, rockery, decking, pergola and stone walling.

But Bradford Council said that, before the improvements, the land had become overgrown and “returned to seed”. It should therefore be protected as part of the green belt, the council said.

Mr Crosswait, of Keighley, West Yorks, was then served with an enforcement notice requiring him to restore the land to its wild state.

He has since lost two court appeals, including a latest ruling at the High Court, which have left him with an additional legal bill of £20,000.

Mr Crosswait, a professional stunt rider, said: “All I did was landscape my garden. I can’t afford to take all of the stuff out of my garden and pay the legal fees as well. I’m scared that my house is going to be repossessed.”

The one acre field behind the house was first converted into a garden by the previous owner in 1993 and was used as a barbecue area and even a mini golf course.

But when Mr Crosswait moved in he spent eight months renovating the house and allowed the garden area to become overgrown before making the improvements to it.

A Bradford Council spokesman said: “The owner of this large field decided to change its use from grazing land to an extensive private garden without first obtaining planning permission. Part of the council’s role is to protect the environment.”

There is a very large and VERY eco-friendly house being built next door to us. The old house was demolished in April and in April the new build began. It is expected to be finished by Dec. and the new owners (a Winchester dentist) and his family will move in.
Meanwhile, as the construction moves along, nothing in their large back lot has seen any landscaping. The hedges on that side are going to seed and overgrown. But ... there are plans afoot to build a small summer house (not a live in house, sort of a fancy garden shed with electric and I suppose it could be slept in as I understand things), at the far end of his property.  I guess my long winded point is that while a house is being constructed, who thinks about the rest of the property. Your concern is seeing the home finished. And since the previous owner used it even for golf, just coz in the interim it went to seed is hardly a reason to screw this guy.
What a contrast tho to the story at the top.  Now if this fellow were to suddenly discover that really,really he’s a traveler. Well .....

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
