After I wrote this entry – Tories flyposting? – I was able to find out that the owners of the land where the old College was are now Bellway Homes.
Bellway Homes have just replied to my email query:
Hi, I believe that Bellway East Midlands is the owner of the former Rugby College site on Lower Hillmorton Road. Can you advise whether you or any other agents have given permission for a political party to use the land to display election materials? Thanks, Owen Richards, local resident.
And the reply
Good Morning,I have spoken with the land department and no consent has been given for any political party to put anything up.Kind Regards,xxxxxx xxxxxxx | Sales Administrator | Bellway Homes East Midlands | 3 Romulus Court | Meridian Business Park | Leicester | LE19 1YG |
I think that is what you call “bang to rights”. The local Conservatives have got posters in Rugby that have been flyposted. It is not an indication of “support” that we see so many, but of their lack of consideration.
