Yes Jon, if you wanted me to tell you what applications we'd had under a 
certain TPO in the last however many years, what the decisions were, and 
which had gone to appeal etc etc, then yes I'd be able to tell you, and show 
you - but admittedly it wouldn't all be in a single place, because in the 
main the information is sorted by property. Luckily for me, however, I also 
store all decisions and appeals in separate drive files by TPO reference as 
well - I call them the 'Heuch Files' 😉

"your waters have been muddied by the poor practice and record keeping of 

individual Councils I think.."

Really? Well I have to agree with you, but only on the basis that individual 
councils keep the records, or don't. 

 

I remain unconvinced that a register in the format you would like is 

necessary, provided all the required information is kept in a format that can 

be accessed - which was my original point...I think...

 

I am not asking for a register in any particular format; I am only asking 
that councils comply with the law and are able & without fuss to provide 
people with the information that is required by law to be available. They 
can't! Can your council, Alastair? 

 

I dream that this information/register is available on line, with no need to 
waste 10 minutes (or more) listening to rubbish about how to pay council tax 
or GDPR requirements on a telephone in order to even start the process of 
finding what information might possibly be available...if I ask very nicely 
and am extraordinarily patient ...
