Henry and Gillian Arnell were residents of Lime Park until 2005. Henry passed away in 2002 leaving Gillian to take her husband's place as a director of Lime Park Estate Limited. It appears that in her role as director Gillian Arnell was unable to prevent Peter Townley from pursuing his campaign as the controlling mind of the so-called residents company, to prevent the restoration of the old generating buildings in Lime Park, contrary to the general duty incumbent on every citizen to protect historic assets in England.
Though Gillian may have mentioned the generating origins to Wealden District Council, the council carried on as if that was not the case. For sure Henry Arnell kept the generating history to himself, to help his partner in crime, Peter Townley achieve their ambition to drive Mr Kruschandl from Lime Park. We understand that Henry Arnell once said he'd "like to bulldoze the tin shack."
Quite wrongly, Wealden's officers used the term in a derogatory fashion to paint a false picture of the value of the historic assets to all and sundry. The truth is that the building is a rare surviving timber building. It was clad in corrugated iron at some time during World War Two as a fire precaution against German bombing raids.
One can imagine the egg on their faces when London University surveyed the building and confirmed its originality and that it is of wooden construction, not corrugated iron as George White and Thomas Hoy told Inspector Raymond Dannruether in 1987. Wealden lied to this inspector and another in 1997, nursing the same lie. They got away with it until 1998 when the Sussex Industrial Archaeology Society visited and realised the find. Then in 1999 the Institute of Archaeology released their Report, courtesy of the County Archaeologist at Lewes, for East Sussex County Council.
The Report caught out Lime Park Estate Limited, where this company had relied on Wealden to keep the inconvenient truth buried. No longer could they hide behind that shield. Wealden of course continued to assist the other residents in Lime Park as if they had done nothing wrong. What are they like!
Henry Arnell was a director at the time of claims by Lime Park Estate that a holly tree was lopped, asking for £0.50 pence in damages + costs. It transpired that the tree complained of was dead and not even inside Lime Park. More egg on faces. The yokes on them, but it did not stop there. Henry Arnell was a keen golfer. One day he was spotted using his golf clubs to swipe flowers outside the generating buildings, but did not apologise for his actions.
Henry also picked a fight with Mr Kruschandl, raising his voice threateningly, then when he was losing ground against solid logic, he called the police alleging assault. When the police arrived on the scene, Mr Kruschandl explained to the officer what had happened in front of Henry. At that point Henry lost his temper again and started shouting at the officer and Mr Kruschandl, proving the account of the incident. It was he who was guilty of common assault. In later encounters Mr Arnell was more reserved, not raising his voice. His chum Peter Townley also called the police on one occasion alleging physical contact, but when examined there was no sign of any such contact. Peter Townley did not use that ruse again, having been caught out.
Vandalism takes many forms. If any person willfully prevents preservation works, or even simply neglects to properly maintain land in the knowledge that shrubs and plants will cause damage if left untended, that level of wanton neglect could constitute vandalism in failing to perform a duty, just as if the perpetrators were removing lead from a church roof is sure to cause decay to the fabric of a building.
Though she may have known of the generating origins of the buildings, she appears to have failed to mention this to Wealden District Council with sufficient import to act as a blocker to enforcement proceedings, giving the council the wherewithal to carry on as if that was not the case. If the residents in Lime Park had fully shared their knowledge of the history attaching to the generating works, it is doubtful that Wealden would have been able to carry on with their vendetta against Mr Kruschandl.
It appears that is staying silent as to the facts, all of the council's guns remained trained on Mr Kruschandl, targeting him not for the good works he was doing, but because they thought that they could single out members of the public as targets to remove from their administrative area, regardless of Article 14 protections that should be afforded to every citizen regardless of status.
Lime Park Estates Limited was set up in March of 1985 by some of the residents in Lime Park, as company number 01893712 expressly to take over management of a shared access.
According to companies house this is a 'residents' 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.
Whereas, any company purporting to manage a shared drive exists to ensure that such access is secured for all. In this case there are two ways of accessing the shared drive, one of which is not properly being maintained. Where the directors of this company conspired to cause loss, that may of itself constitute a further criminal offence under the Criminal Law Act of 1977.

FARMING - The backbone of any society is the production of food to feed the population, though these days much of what we eat is imported from other producers, such as fish farmed in Asia. We can no longer find enough fish locally having exhausted our fisheries. Agriculture is also changing where we have drained the soil for so long with artificial fertilizers that yields will fall, meaning a shift to obtaining protein from the sea - but unfortunately we are disposing of around 8 millions tons of plastic in our seas - poisoning marine life that we need to keep us nourished. Food security is therefore high on the United Nations agenda via the Food and Agriculture Organization.
