We built a facility, within airport land, approved by Adelaide Airport to be there. It’s in extreme close proximity to the refueling depot and after staff started having headaches, extreme fuel smells wafting over etc... it was made ubundantly clear we needed to investigate. 

 

Exxon Mobil contacted us for a meeting then denied all requested documentation to enable us to put in procedures. 

 

I think they’re concerned they’ve cut corners maybe. So now we’re going to have to push it further with Adelaide airport itself to see why they had no issue with us building there in the first place or tests never were conducted. 

 

that's the basic version.

Sounds like a long painful process that will end up with Exxon paying you to leave:riaa:  and buying the land of you. 

 

 

I was under the impression that the Freedom of Information Act gives you a legal right to request access to documents held by state government agencies, and local councils.

 

When you're in court get your barrister to say, gimme money meow.

The problem is ... if I had to put money on it... they’ve gotten away with no safety stuff or epa issues for years and their own staff have no whs practices we can tell or ppe they wear on a daily basis. So ya asking questions isn’t just about us, if we ask the right people they will need to audit which could mean millions in construction alterations, whs policies and things brought in, as well as a possible finding of other people/ businesses effected as well who weren’t aware and will demand compensation. 

 

Big lot of ifs and butts... but after spending upwards of ten million on just our project alone, as well as the cost of 50 years of revenue, they’re trying to make us go away imo. 

 

After requesting an an informal meeting with us to inform us of our safety requirements being their neighbour, as soon as the word “jet fuel smell” was raised, informally, the meeting turned into 7 people on their side rather than a one on one informal chat. 

Will be interesting to see how it unfolds

This is all I'm saying there has to be some form of damage, physical or monetary for compensation. Just because they didn't follow 'laws' will only bring about fines to the company. Its always best to strike a deal then go to court. Find a good lawyer preferably one that is not on drugs.

Dennis Denotu has experience in airport property litigation and rights - probably worth seeing if he'll be interested in looking into the case @Princess Fluffy.

I dunno. Maybe you'd have a good guess?

 

What's a usual euro car for an airforce dude? Fiat 500?

 

Edit: late father in law was airforce and he drove a bus. Was it a volvo?

Was my 1st bike - the watercooled version (RD250LC) - did the twin disc front end and kept getting pulled over because the cops thought I was on a 350 on my P's

Was thinking the same thing - wondering if we'll see him once he's off the nest ;)
