FALSIFICATION OF INFORMATION
ENDANGERING THE LIVES OF GLYNNEATH RESIDENTS
|CERI MORRIS HEAD OF PLANNING
CORRUPTION INCIDENT - 20200504A-IN-NPTC-morris.epa1990
The Head of Planning can be seen to support Steve Ball's corrupt actions in his 'complaint resolution' referred by the Council Leader.
We see here a blatant falsification of both this UK Government legislation and the council contaminated land policy which allies itself with the 1990 Environmental Protection Act. In his letter dated 4 May 2020, he says:
"Turning specifically to the issue of land contamination at the site
and whether the Council has historically contravened the Environmental
Protection Act 1990, I would advise that this legislation no longer applies
when a site is going through the planning
If we refer to the council's Contaminated Land Strategy in place at the time we will see that land contamination should be dealt with early in the planning process............
"One of the key objectives of the council's Contaminated Land Strategy (Key Objective 4:) is to ensure that during the redevelopment of new sites, land contamination issues are dealt with effectively and at an early stage of the planning process."
and then we should refer to the UK Environmental Law Association's guidance on the 1990 Environmental Protection Act and contaminated land which states:
"Please note that the planning process does not override the contaminated land regime provided by Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990."
Both the Neath-Port Talbot Council Contaminated Land Strategy and an Association of experts in UK environmental law state that the 1990 Act is part of the planning process. Ceri Morris states that it's not. Ceri Morris has deliberately committed an act of deception that may cost the lives of the residents he is paid to serve.
