Responses from Councillors:
If you are making reference to a Commuity, kindly have the manners tospell their name correctly. It is Charedi with a "C". Many thanks,
Cllr Linda Kelly
Dear councillor Kelly
As the word is a transliteration it is spelt either Haredi or Charedi and we chose to use Haredi as this is what was used by the eminent Jewish scholar who wrote to the report.
I am sorry this seems to have offended you.
Just for your information and I will not be responding to any more emails. It did seem to offend me, it did offend me. With regards to your eminent scholar, reading through his findings there are an awful lot of spelling mistakes, he should have used aspell check.With regards to the word, Charedi since you all live in Hackney, perhaps you could have asked your neighbour about the correctspelling.
Cllr Linda Kelly
I was about to make the same observation as Cllr. Kelly, but she has beaten me to it.
Thank you for your email, would you allow me to print this on my blogsite - http://thecazenoveblog.blogspot.com/

Re. Planningwatch email dated 14 October
Thank you for the above dated email.
You have raised very important points. I will discuss the issues raised with my
Colleagues and also ask questions to the Planning Officers.
Haredi Judaism>From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaHaredi or Chareidi Judaism is the most theologically conservative form of Orthodox Judaism . A follower of Haredi Judaism is called a Haredi (Haredim in the plural).
Could we perhaps concentrate on the issues raised rather than spelling?
Cllr Linda Smith
Thank you for the spelling lesson, spelling is an issue if you aregoing to talk about a Community.The Community referred to in issue live in Stamford Hill and callthemselves Chareidi.

My understanding is the area of exemption is more simply a nuance ofinterpretation but that the planning guidelines will have to be adheredto so cannot understand the furore.The areas are not within my ward or constituency and so I am notsupposed to get involved, it is not that I am ignoring your emails.
I have asked Guy if the planning dept could let us know were there had been a legal exention that the staus of property ie single family dewilling conversion or HMO would be usual, it wouldn't bve perfect but might give us any idea of percentages.
