Heavey v The Greater London Authority: Outcome of Preliminary Hearing


County Court at Central London, Royal Courts of Justice

This afternoon Declan's case against the Mayor of London's Greater London Authority (GLA) for terminating our eligibility to our flat without a right of review or appeal was struck out by a district court judge. We await his order and transcript of judgment, but hope this email to GLA Clearing House tonight, the source of all the problems, will negate the chances of us having to appeal:

GLA Clearing House, run by St Mungo's Broadway, has stood in defiance of this order since it was issued last May:

While Declan was at Court, I received for the first time ever an alert from our hosting company SiteGround stating that our Church and State website had used 90% of our available storage and that we could start experiencing service problems.

At first I thought this was some kind of mistake. I have these two screenshots dated 28 January 2016 showing that our disk space usage is 2.48GB and that we are only using 69% of the available storage:

I find it inexplicable how I could have received this alert, especially since our disk space usage is now just 2.39GB (ie, 0.09GB less than when we were only using 69% of the available storage). Our chairman Dr Stephen Mumford is paying SiteGround $1,000 per year to host the site and I am hoping this can be sorted without another upgrade.

SITEGROUND UPDATE (4 February): After two days of correspondence with SiteGround, a technical support supervisor has finally explained that the reason for the 90% usage was "the cPanel upgrade done by our system administrators recently". All the files left behind by this upgrade have now been 'flushed' and everything is back to normal.
