Valuation Tribunal Service - The VTS supports the Valuation Tribunal for England (VTE) by arranging or providing accommodation, staff, IT, equipment, training and general advice.
It is sponsored by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). The VTS works in accordance with a corporate governance framework and requirements laid down by its sponsoring department.
The VTS Board is made up of a Chairman and members appointed by the Secretary of State. The majority of Board members must be chairmen of the VTE. The President of the VTE is an ex-officio member of the Board.
The Chairman is Robin Evans, formerly a Board member, who was appointed from 1 April 2018. The Deputy Chairman is Suzanne McCarthy and the other Board members are Martin Allingham, Lola Moses, Neil Buckley and Kevin Everett.
The VTS appoints a Chief Executive with the consent of the Secretary of State. Tony Masella has been Chief Executive since 2 July 2009. The VTS has a Head Office based in London and about 60 other staff working in offices in London and Doncaster, or from their homes.
Administrators and case managers assist in the day-to-day operations, acting as contact points with the parties to appeals, giving general advice about the process, making arrangements for hearings and sending out notices and guidance. Tribunal clerks attend hearings to welcome those who attend and to advise the VTE members on points of procedure and law.
The national clerk or Registrar provides advice and support to the President and gives professional guidance to staff. Jon Bestow was appointed to this role in June 2009.
Jon Bestow works for the Valuation Tribunal Service. He refused to provide information as to the addresses of the Tribunal panel members dealing with an appeal by Lime Park Heritage Trust. There is therefore no right of appeal in relation to claims for monies against Mr Kruschandl, as well Mr Bestow should know. There is however what appears to be a criminal conspiracy to hide the identities of the panel members as per the following emails received by Mr Kruschand from Mr Bestow.
We would suggest that where a person is accused of a crime, that corporate protections cannot be applied nor anonymity sustained. It could well be that Peter Hardcastle or Judith Barnes may care to blow the whistle. It seems to us that if that might be the case it would be inappropriate to contact them through the organisation that is the subject of misfeasance in public office. Though misfeasance has now probably migrated to malfeasance.
I will not be providing you with the personal addresses of the members of the Tribunal.
If you have any documents to serve, they should be served on the address below.
The Tribunal has provided you with a copy of the decision which may be sufficient for your purpose.
The Valuation Tribunal Service (VTS) is supposed to be independent, fair and impartial, but from what we have seen they think that they are above the law and can uphold decisions that are illegal in England and Wales.
In a case involving Andrew Corkish, Tracy Nicholson from the Valuation Office and VTS panel members Judith Barnes and Peter Hardcastle, it was explained to the tribunal that was held in the Hastings Council offices, Muriel Matters House on Friday the 7th of September 2018 that a conspiracy to defraud was in progress to which they would become a party to if they upheld a valuation by Andrew Corkish to band a building in residential Band E, where that building could not be used for residential purposes by virtue of an enforcement notice that prevented residential occupation legally.
Shortly after this hearing the Wealden District Council (WC) pursued a summons seeking monies for such occupation where this council knew that such an action was likely to cause loss to their victim Nelson Kruschandl. This appears to us to be part of the long-term agenda of WC to cause financial distress to Mr Kruschandl, as when they tried to bankrupt him over what is now referred to as the Potty Training case, but even that seems rather insignificant compared with the WCs fraudulent obtaining of an the enforcement notice that they have been using for over 30 years to disadvantage their target in a manner that can only be described as Gestapo in manner as if we lived in a Nazi controlled state, for Thomas Hoy and George Morham White lied to Inspector Dannreuther in 1987, to obtain their false instrument.
It did not stop there, J Douglas Moss and Chezel Bird, together with Victorio Scarpa, with Ian Kay and Ashley Brown and Derek Holness in the background, continued to nurse the lie before Raymond Michael in 1997, turning what might have been simple negligence (misfeasance) into malfeasance, where misfeasance is a civil wrong and malfeasance is a criminal act.
Sussex police refused to investigate these issues in 1997 when a petition led to 12 independent complaints of a criminal nature being referred to them for investigation. Since then Sussex police have been branded utterly corrupt by virtue of their shooting of Jimmy Ashley in 1998 and the subsequent investigation by Hampshire and Kent constabularies as reported in The Guardian and Hansard.
The failure (or refusal) of Sussex police under Paul Whitehouse, now Giles York, to do their duty has allowed WC to operate illegally for years without fear of being prosecuted. The crime commissioner, Katy Bourne, appears also to be in on the conspiracy where she will not get involved.

PROCEEDS OF CRIME - Valuation officers who tow the party line are not only highly paid civil servants, but also stand to benefit from their involvement with underhanded dealings in planning consents in other geographical regions where there may be a "you scratch my back, and we'll scratch yours" arrangement. On the other hand, it could be that insider knowledge can be used legitimately to obtain consents for houses in the country such as this nice little retreat in an out of the way location, that might be termed green belt to the man in the street. If a council officer is paid cash for favours or receives 'in-kind' inducements for what amounts to fraudulent or even insider dealing and they are convicted, their assets could be seized by way of proceeds of crime. Is it worth it? Yes, power corrupts. It always will and those in positions of power will sometimes be tempted - because they know that others in their ring of power will protect them when the brown stuff hits the fan.
MISFEASANCE & MALFEASANCE
When an officer of the courts omits to include evidence that he knows is relevant to a hearing, that is termed misfeasance in public office. Where an officer then tries to cover up his or her misfeasance (as did Ian Kay in the Stream Farm matter), that becomes malfeasance. The difference is that misfeasance is a civil wrong, whereas malfeasance is a criminal offence. The leading case precedent on malfeasance is: R. v Bowden 1995 Court of Appeal (98 1 WLR).
