22th March 2005,COPYRIGHT J. P. KROL © - TRANSLATION FROM DUTCH INTO ENGLISH BY J. P. KROL
Highly esteemed Executive Committee,
The undersigned may object against the above on the following ground :
Point 1 .
The undersigned does not know on the basis of which considerations noise nuisance (often leading to serious -recuperation- sleep disturbance- has been determined in the zoning plan under discussion .
It is however known that noise nuisance in connection with building activity can be very considerable .
The undersigned has regularly discussed this both on municipal (mayor) medical as scientific level .
In connection with this discussion a report has now appeared (may 2004) .
This report has been brought to the attention of the Municipality in various ways and positively received -a.o. Service Environmental- and Building supervision (DMB), Heads Building and Housing control of the Municipal districts .
The report would have been discussed in a consultation between the Department Heads Building- and housing supervision of the Municipal districts .
The undersigned is awaiting the minutes of said consultations in order to be able make -or have made- an evaluation of the general applicability of the end product .
Among other things considering the above it seems almost inconceivable that on the relevant date the correct data have been used to for the zoning plan design to determine the noise nuisance and its consequences in the relevant area .
One consequence of this would almost certainly be that this noise nuisance has not been adequately determined and possibly be (much) higher .
Point 2 .
Subsequent considerations .
It is very likely, at least not impossible that the present draft -and its predictable connection with the rents - must also be seen as an important part of a policy model which is still under trail (or in a pilot balloon stage) but which can have extremely serious -life shortening- consequences for the Amsterdam (and possibly even the European) population (+/- 75%) .
In order to prevent that the above could even in the remotest way be connected to (a form of ) genocide (compare sleep deprivation; Qantanamo Bay) or preparation thereof and the possibility that even individuals could submit this to the Human Rights Committee of the United Nations (during March / April in Geneva) - the above has to be given befitting attention . It would seem incorrect to discuss this type of issue when one would not be entirely without blame oneself .
The undersigned is elaborating on the above on the Internet under the link :
Hard copies of the texts in this file can be send almost immediately when required. Obviously they can also be activated on the electronic version of this elucidation which has been send to you by e-mail. For that reason they are considered to be an integral part of this elucidation .
Point 3 .
Considerations on the basis of loyalty to Governance.
Apart from the above there are other important objections which on considerations of general interest and loyalty to Governance can not be mentioned in this appeal .
If this appeal does not meet the requirements as mentioned for an appeal in your letter the undersigned can further elucidate the points in writing in a manner befitting all considerations mentioned in the above .
1 . Further elucidation to this appeal:
2. Euthanasia under globalization.
3. Triumph of a president
To the extend that in the appendices above references to other appendices or references to documents on the Internet are included , actual duplicates of the relevant documents can be forwarded almost on call .
Therefore said duplicates are considered to be an integral part of this appeal.
They can also be activated on-line or printed directly from the e-mail version of this appeal.
In hope to have sufficiently informed you with the above, I beg to remain,
yours obediently ,
jan peter krol
