LIME PARK ESTATE LIMITED

 

 

 

 

Lime Park Estate Limited was set up in March of 1985 by some of the residents in Lime Park, company number 01893712. According to companies house this is a property management company, code: 98000.  But that may not be strictly accurate, where many of the occupiers in the Park are not represented and this company works against the interests of some of those who are not represented to cause loss contrary to the Fraud Act 2006.

 

It seems that from the timing, this company was formed with the express purpose of giving some property occupiers an advantage over other occupiers. This ruse was achieved by denying some property occupiers membership of this company - hence no say in the running or voting rights - and we believe not fully apprising Wickens Estates Limited of their intentions - otherwise, Wickens Estates Limited would become vicariously liable. This is the subject of an ongoing investigation and buyers should beware. Wickens Estates Limited (Co No 00463356) is now Store Property Developments Limited.

 

The lawful purpose of a residents property management company is to fairly represent the interests of all concerned. Hence, a prerequisite is that all the occupiers of whatever, are offered the opportunity to make representations - and this is normally by being a member, whether a company or just an informal association. You may consider such tactics on the part of Lime Park Estates Limited to be bullying or intimidatory, but the Companies Acts describe this as oppression - which is of course unlawful - and as that mantra moved past November 2006, became illegal by virtue of the Fraud Act 2006, with anyone involved potentially liable in respect of the Accessories Aiding and Abettors Act 1861.

 

Clearly, unless resolved, this is a matter for Companies House, possibly involving the disqualification of any and all directors, unless they work to correct their modus operandi and include the interests of all those using the shared drive in their day to day thinking.

 

Conspiracy to cause loss is a criminal offence under the provisions of the Criminal Law Act 1977. The maximum penalty against conviction can be life imprisonment.

East Lodge

 

 

 

From 1909 the Baron de Roemer purchased the estate and began generating electricity for the village of Herstmonceux. This milestone in the development of what would later become the national grid, would put Lime Park on the map with the Generating buildings becoming important as a surviving Monument under the limited protections afforded by an English Heritage Monument Protection Programme.

 

The gatehouse known as East Lodge is a Grade II listed building.

 

The Park is now divided into several plots with different owners as detailed below. Should any entry not be correct please email the site publishers for correction.

 

After 1952, the main house was divided into four smaller units to form a terraced row of houses. The former stables were converted to residential use.

 

In 1982 the generating buildings were separated from Lime.

 

 

 

LIGHTING OF BONFIRES - Another deliberate act allegedly designed to cause loss, or expose the historic buildings as to potential fires and vermin infestation, was the lighting of bonfires in close proximity to the historic generating buildings. This small parcel of land was used to store plant material and branches that was then lit, just feet away from a boundary. At the time the parcel of land was owned by Camille de Kok. According to the fround workers, fires were lit under instruction of Louise Jones and Peter Townley, as directors of Lime Park Estate Limited.

 

The occupiers of the historic buildings complained to the local authority and the Fire Brigade. In the end the fires had to cease because Russell Pike was not covered against fire risk with adjacent buildings being so close. The fencing seen here was removed by Lime Park Estate Limited after it was pointed out that it caused an obstruction to enjoyment of the shared drive. Camille de Kok and Louise Jones sold up and moved shortly after this episode in the vendetta that was unfolding.

The old generating buildings, Herstmonceux, East Sussex

 

 

Herstmonceux (pronounced: "Hers-mon-zoo") is a village in the county of East Sussex in the South East of England. It is the location of Herstmonceux Castle and the former site of the Royal Greenwich Observatory.

 

Herstmonceux is also famous for trugs. These are baskets made from willow boards set in an ash or chestnut frame.  However, this tiny village, with its single parade of shops along the busy A271 (Gardner Street), a bottleneck for traffic, is perhaps more famous for The Old Generating Works (Steam House), which together with Rudyard Kipling's Batemans, is the only surviving evidence of the early electricity generating industry in Sussex.  This building in included on a Monument Protection Programe (MPP) since it has fallen into a state of disrepair, much as the windmill at Windmill Hill, had been allowed to deteriorate to the stage where that almost fell down.  The windmill was saved with the help of a 500,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery fund

 

Other buildings of note in the locality include Lime House and Lime Cottage.  Lime Cottage is a grade 2 listed building.  Lime House is the manor house previously owned by the Baron de Roemer.  It was his son Charles who built the generating building and supply network which gave electricity to Herstmonceux in advance of other towns.  A pioneer indeed.

NEIGHBOURS - June and Peter Townley in years gone by.

 

 

Peter and June Townley allowed this to happen to their evergreens to cause loss of light to a neighbour

 

ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOUR - The legal height for a row of evergreens like this is two meters. You can see from the six foot fencing panel on the right that the height of these trees is more like fourteen feet. Russell Pike trimmed these trees to just over 12 feet in 2012. When asked why he had not cut them to the correct legal height, he replied that he thought twelve feet was the legal height under the Antisocial Behaviour Act 2003. If you check this out on any Government website you will see that it is 6 feet 6 inches or two meters.

 

In addition, it is folly to allow trees this size to grow untended when so close to archaeologically important foundations. They are just three feet away at the closest point. Faced with this evidence, there can be little doubt that Peter and June Townley were acting contrary to the law. Peter Townley continues to be defiant. This may become the subject of litigation if Peter Townley, his agents, or his successors do not start to behave themselves. Anyone thinking of purchasing the old Rectory would do well to look at the liability they would be taking on. Any new owner would be likely to become the subject of an Antisocial Behaviour Order if they did not tend these evergreens. We doubt though that any new owner would not want to get this hedge under control. Especially where damages could mount as the roots undermine the adjacent foundations.
