Subject: Complaint for a Litter Abatement Order (A355)
I received your letter of 13th September in the post today.
Thank you for agreeing to proceed with the complaint in its original form. I note what you say about the defending council’s view might be on the dates.
I have a number of concerns about your letter.
Firstly, you do not say anything in it about the documents you enclosed with it. I would have expected you to have said “I have enclosed the following documents”, listed them and then said what I need to do with each of them.
The documents received were:
* One of the 3 copies of my “Complaint for a Litter Abatement Order” signed and dated by you but without the accompanying statement and photo evidence.
* 2 copies of the 4 copies of the “Summons on Complaint” signed and dated by you.
Secondly, you have set the date for the hearing as 6th October one of the two dates that I said was (and still is) inconvenient for me.
In my e-mail 24th August I said that your colleague Mr Rennell had said that the summons would be sent to me for delivery to the other party which was different from the procedure adopted in the previous case against the Secretary Of State for Transport over the M40 when the Court sent it directly to him. In your letter of 1st September you said “I will consider the matter of issuing the summons when you return all the documentation to me”.
So how is the summons to be delivered? Has it already been sent to the defendant? If so, was it accompanied by a copy of the complaint with the statement and photo evidence? If I am to deliver it do I attach a copy of the complaint with the statement and photo evidence? If so you will have to send a copy of the photo evidence back to me. How are we going to deal with setting a new date for the hearing?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Please use e-mail and not the post to speed things up.
