[10 SEP 98] STRATFORD ON AVON DISTRICT COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Open Session For Paddock Lane Hearing

A committee that will look into claimed breaches of planning conditions on work at a former Stratford rubbish tip, is to meet in open public session on Monday, 14 September.

Members of Stratford District Council's Enforcement Sub-committee agreed this morning (Thursday), that the presentation of a report on alleged breaches by the Council's own contractor during reclamation works at Paddock Lane, will be held in public. However, members will debate the issue afterwards in confidential session.

The committee usually holds its meeting behind closed doors, due to the confidential nature of its discussions on potential action, including prosecutions. Because of the public interest shown in the works that have been carried out on the Council-owned Paddock Lane site over the last few months, the decision was made to hear this particular report in open session.

A 3.4m contract to reclaim the former refuse tip next to Stratford's racecourse was awarded by the Council to AIG Remediation. Work started in June on the 11 acre site to remove approximately 150,000 tonnes of rubbish and contaminated soil, and replace it with clean material in readiness for a housing development.

The removal of the rubbish, which has now been completed, resulted in a considerable number of complaints by local residents and allegations that the Council was breaching its own planning conditions, laid down to control the removal. Work continues at the site with the backfilling of clean material, which is scheduled to be finished in another two months or so.

Following a number of public meetings, the Enforcement Sub-committee asked for a report to be prepared, which is being considered on Monday, 14 September at 10.00am, in the Council offices at Stratford-upon-Avon. A summary of the report will be issued to the media later today, and copies will also be available at Monday's meeting for the public.
