"Mr Gray should not hold any of the posts he now finds himself."
Says Tony Barnett
May I first say that any,documents or requests for information etc where common lands are an issue, they are not regulated by FOI, as the legislation provides, authorities subject to s 3(2) of the 1965 act.
I had hoped to get you to understand that the ponds are subject to rights, both, with come under the 2000 crow act.
Mr Gray, is a council officer, he is also the secretary of the angling club.
His dominant duties are to the public as an enforcement officer, upholding all matters that are the responsibility, Frensham common was "vested" into the protection of the land but without any jurisdiction.
As the secretary of the fishing club, he is also responsible to see that no infringements of the common land legislation is breached and to make his colleagues aware of this.
Contrary to his duties, he has not, informed his pals that the leases by the NATIONAL TRUST AND WAVERLEY COUNCIL are fraudulent through false representation and that payments for such leases are from land (ponds have a CL No), not belonging, used as collateral.
There is also the fact that the fishing club are obtaining payment from members of the public under the same conditions, which now that Richard Cane and Mr Gray have been made aware of the situation puts both in more danger should prosecution of unlawful occupation of commoners rights and open public access.
Mr Gray should not hold any of the posts he now finds himself.
I have documentation from the commons registration and a statement from Waverley that it does not hold documents that show ownership or the rights to make deeds of grant or grants of easement, the land registry have disclosed that they to have no locus stan-di.
That is the situation I have requested to be re-investigated
