Any resident of Stoke on Trent, who has yet to be convinced on the benefits of borrowing £55m for a new Civic and the partnership with Genr8, you are now OFFICIAL wasting your time writing to the Mohammed Pervez the Leader of the City Council.
Im a reply to a Local Resident our Leader said "Any further requests from you in relation to the Central Business District and the relocation of the Council to Hanley will not be processed and will be filed and not acknowledged."
The City Council openly admit they have done a poor PR job of getting their message across to the people of the City, yet now are REFUSING to enter into any sort of debate with local residents, hows that for re-engaging with the public.
Where a number of requests are received, not necessarily from the same person, and they relate to the same or similar subjects then the Council is entitled to refuse these requests under Section 14(2) of the Act as they are regarded as being repeated. Also the Section14(1) permits the Council to refuse requests from a requester where it is considered that the requests are vexatious in intent or where it is apparent that the intent of the requests is to impede the operation of a public authority. Any further requests from you in relation to the Central Business District and the relocation of the Council to Hanley will not be processed and will be filed and not acknowledged.
Best regardsCouncillor Mohammed Pervez
In a reply to all councillors Cllr Pervez denies sending the above email
It is beyond belief that you have deliberately misled all the recipients of this email !
From what I can gather, the email was sent by the Information Rights Team NOT BY MYSELF ! I wasn't even aware of it !
Is it any wonder, therefore, that I don't reply to your emails !
Councillor Mohammed Pervez,
Leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council & Councillor for Moorcroft Ward.
