Subject: Complaint for a Litter Abatement Order (A355)
Thank you for your letter of 15th September enclosing two sets of the statement and photo evidence from my compliant for a Litter Abatement Order omitted for your letter of 13th September.
Hearing Date Adjournment
If I deliver the summons to the defendant with a 6th Oct hearing date how will they know not to turn up on that date and appear instead on 13th Oct?
Serving The Summons
You say “as stated in correspondence .. it is for you as the complainant to serve the summons”. I cannot see anything to this effect in the correspondence. Where was it stated?
You say you invite me to refer to the Rules you have mentioned i.e. Magistrates’’ Court Rules R 99 (your letter of 27th Aug). I have googled this but cannot find it anywhere. Can you please let me have a copy or point out how I can refer to it e.g. via a web link.
What I did find was “MAGISTRATES’ COURTS RULES OF COURT” – under “Rule 8 Sheriff of the Court” it said (1) Except as otherwise provided in these rules, the process of the court shall be served or executed, as the case may be, through the sheriff. Is this relevant?
I would be grateful if you could respond to the first point as a matter of urgency before I proceed further with the summons.
I look forward to hearing from you.
