It may be helpful if we knew something of the background of "tkane" - does (or did) this person work for the Developers? Or for Redbridge Council?See post on this blog - "How Green is My Belt" - I believe that the much broader subject of Council policy on Housing Development (of which Pioneer Point is but one example) will be raised as a forum topic on RCF.
I'm quite sure a lot of people would like to know more about tkane!He certainly has a lot of information available to him including detailed plans at a very early stage of the process.Back in 2005 he was challenged:So, are you the architect, the developer or the salesman Huh OWN UP !! but has never responded (though see later).Also from 2005, tkane made this authoritative post:I can assure you there will be no changes made to this design. The development will be called Pioneer Point.More from the same year:However much you're against this project, it will happen and we are confident the majority of Ilford will be in favour of it.Note the use of 'we' there ...... No I don't live in Ilford, but did you really expect me to? I don't even live in England! I am based in Geneva, Switzerland. But I am currently in the UK .... ... I wouldn't mind living in Ilford if my income would only allow me to live in East london. My salary is not the typical salary a person in Ilford would have, I can pretty much live anywhere I want in the world.However, in 2006, he did make this one comment: ... when did I ever say i was involved in any way? knowsie
If this person is not prepared to clarify his/her connection with project then he/she cannot expect to be taken seriously.This could just be a wind-up!
Ahem: Pioneer Point Buiolders go into administration
Might I respectfully suggest thatNeighbourhoodWatcher go back through everything that tkane has ever posted?I have neither the time nor the inclination to cross-reference everything he has posted against what was available in the public domain at the time but he has always seemed to be well in advance of that - particularly in the early stages.He has never posted on any thread that does not concern Pioneer Point and will disappear from the forum for long lengths of time - years, I think, without checking. Yet if someone rattles his cage, he obviously knows about it will respond.Wind-up? I think not!Look at all of his posts; ask yourself if a wind-up merchant would go to such lengths to pursue and research so much on this single issue, just for a "wind-up".Let us know what conclusion(s) you come up with ...... I think it will take you some time ...
