Maybe the deeper ones help with draughts/sound,…

I think that part covers the tracks and is is removable, so you can slide the door into the closed position, take off that top part and then remove the…

Council substituting falsified documents for new build

I can't see an answer to my questions though.
Who oversaw the build.
