Public Questions to the Council

To receive questions from members of the public in accordance with Standing Order No. 12.

 

Question submitted by Max Kerley:

 

“In April 2019 four new council houses in Rufford Close, Chesterfield had to be demolished as a result of a suspected fire under the houses. The fire took place in a coal seam under the houses. The presence of the coal seam was known to the council during the planning process for these houses and a consultant’s report (idiom merebrook ref L-20129-2.4.2-16-S349-KRP dated 15 July 2016) recommended that "coal be removed in its entirety from beneath proposed building footprints, from service trenches and gardens".

 

This recommendation was, however, not carried out in full and the coal seam was left in place under two of the houses. The reason given is that "the reinforced concrete raft foundation design would overcome any issues". This decision has now cost Chesterfield tax payers almost £1 million.

 

Does Chesterfield Borough Council accept that the decision to ignore the consultant’s recommendation and not to remove all the coal from under these houses was seriously flawed?”
