The 28 days to declare the Russian wood salvaged from the foreshore last month must be well and truly up by now. I haven't noticed any new sheds or fences appearing on the Thanet landscape over the last month. As most Thanet folk only took an armful for future needs and those who took some for firewood have probably disposed of the evidence during the recent cold snap. This leaves those who took more than their needs to declare to the Receiver of Wrecks. Publicly TDC and KCC have been on the ball stamping out the commercial building use of the wood. However, I have a feeling that the Receiver of wrecks in tray hasn't been exactly overflowing , but I may be wrong.
