Down your way with Danny.
“I noticed another blog from Mr.Peter.Perrin, who is another blogger of note.
He was discussing an article that had, been raised and pursued by Mrs.Dee.Lodge regarding Toxic Black Mould which is a Category 1 Hazard to life and a major health problem, I also noted that the Secretary of State for communities and local government, Mr.Andrew.Stunell in answer to a written question asked by Thurrock MP Jackie Doyle-Price in which he states “Damp and mould growth is a category 1 Hazard, all councils under a duty to take action in such cases.
It seems that the Belhus ward Councillors, Charles and Wendy Curtis and Sue Gray, have decided to down grade the serious hazard category 1 down to category 4.
If the secretary for state, has given it a category 1 which is a serious health risk to life, and a category 4 is not a risk, then how can three ward councillors down grade it, they haven’t the power or right to do it. Does this make them liable by law to pay compensation to anybody living in a mould ridden house or flat by down grading this government act?
It looks to me and several other residents that, these three councillors have either suffered from either a bout of CRASS STUPIDITY, or they have washed their hands of the matter.
I spoke to one tenant, who’s name I cannot reveal, but who lives in the maisonettes in Orchard Close, as had to endure many months with Black Toxic Mould, which has invaded his kitchen and hallway areas.
He has reported the matter several times from the telephone inside the local housing office in Derwent Parade, on each occassion he as had to wait for up to ten to fifteen minutes with music blaring down the phone.
He has had the “mould man” out as they call him, at Morrison, he came along and sprayed it, and said that he had a serious leak, from the flat above and he would report it: He didnt, so another telephone call was made, and a housing inspector was going to come out as an emergency, that was at 10am at 4.45pm he turned up but didn’t ring the door to be let in, but left a card and went.
He again called the repair line from home, and said that nobody had come, they said they would send out another inspector, that was over six weeks ago, and he is still waiting for the housing inspector, and he is still breathing in very dangerous spores from the black mould, he is now receiving treatment for a severe viral breathing infection to his lungs.
The question isnt a case of will it harm you, but how long before it will kill you?
I am hoping to be down your way very soon. Danny
