Dear Lady Andrews

Battle of Fulford

Thank you for adding those details to my narrative. I assure you that I have not raised any complaint about the time that the designation process took. Indeed, I submitted the application at the request of EH and was briefed during a visit to the Holborn office about the negotiations to revive the secondary legislation. So I recognised that it would take time.

You explain the circumstances when English Heritage changed their view about approving the planning permission but I am disappointed that you did not address my assertion, that I am now prepared to test in Court, that EH had been misled.

I also hoped you would note the consequences that the introduction of the same false information into the planning process had on the designation decision, which ignores the experts and relies on discredited data.

I look forward to receiving all of the information I have requested and I appreciate the hard work involved. I believe that this case is very important since I am increasingly confident that we can demonstrate the careless way that some who seek to damage unique heritage assets behave. I hope that Fulford will send out a useful message about the way the planning system has gone wrong.

So I regret that you do not intend to pursue this as I looked to the Commission to intervene when a systemic problem has been identified with the organisation you govern. But could I ask you to look again at the issues that I raised in my original letterbecause I do think they merit your urgent attention.
