Dear Mr Willis,

Thank you for your email dated April 25. Firstly could I please offer you my apologies for this delayed response?

The following is also still outstanding:

  1. Disability legislation – I note your response but LCC certainly failed to make all reasonable adjustments in accordance with the Equality Act 2010. At Huttoft Car Terrace a reasonable adjustment would be to move the height barriers back and have disabled parking bays outside of the height barriers. With regards the “dedicated disabled parking spaces, two over height parking bays at Marsh Yard” these are most certainly not disabled parking bays as they are not marked as such. In conclusion if LCC undertake the reasonable adjustments as I have detailed I would believe this to be acceptable
  2. Byelaw Not For Car Parks – This is clearly the case. If LCC disagree with me please provide a definitive statement from your solicitor signed by your solicitor to the effect that the byelaw does apply to car parks. In addition as you are defining the car park as a pleasure ground could you please provide a risk assessment regards children playing in a car park?
  3. Height Barriers – Structural Defect – This remains unaddressed. Could you please provide a risk assessment for the posts?
  4. Height Barrier – Off Street Parking Order – Definitive statement requested from your solicitor remains unaddressed. Could you please provide this?
  5. My Belief – As anglers are being issued permits to park overnight (please see attached) not to issue me one to practise my belief is most certainly breaching my human rights. Could I please request a permit to park over night to carry out my belief?


The following is still an outstanding FOI request. If you decline to address this I will refer the matter to the Information Commissioner:

  1. FOI Request – Unaddressed since March 17 – regards “BBC” – Please locate email from myself to you on 17 March 14:30

As soon as the above is addressed I am more than happy to meet with LCC.

Test Case

Following discussion with Lincolnshire Police over the weekend it was thought that a test case would be the most sensible way forward. I am more than happy to be a test case.

I would like to offer LCC the opportunity to “ticket” me. Upon receiving the “ticket” I will then challenge the byelaw in a court of law. All LCC need to do is agree a date with me they wish to ticket me and I will happily park up on Huttoft Car Terrace between the hours of 22.00 and 06.00.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kindest Regards,

Andy Strangeway
