Finally some action from the council down at Goldendale Pool.
After getting in touch with a member of the council on the 14th of Feb 2013 a order goes up just under a month later on the 12th of March.
The damage has already been done.
I'll now be writing to Stoke-on-Trent City Council and the Secretary of State for the Enviroment to take legal action. This is happening far too often in this area now.
However, there was one thing pointed out by The New Home Historian, Steve Bowers, that the earth works that have been cut into the side of the pool do look like they are going to be proper fishing bays.
