Dear Ms Chase

I think you might be wrong here – I think they do have to show SMBC the certificates. I shall check my facts and get back to you.

I would be obliged if you confirm that I have the following facts correct:-

Aquinas commissioned a contamination survey from Faber Maunsell paid for by the taxpayer. It was inadequate but never mind.

Once the application was through planning stage they then employed Greater Manchester Geological Unit (owned by Stockport Council) to commission another survey (paid for by the taxpayer) which demanded less stringent contamination remediation measures. Just trying to check the facts.

I shall cc this to the local press again.

Kind regards
