Housing Assiciations Blocked By Local Authority

Recommended Posts

Just had a long discussion with a honcho from Acent housing. These are a considerable housing assiciation in the north west. They have had fully closed housing lists for almost 18 months. Single mums are told to go home.

They have complained to local authority South Ribble Borough Council about this and have repeatedly asked for more building land. The council have refused point blank to open any greenbelt land for development and only offer brownbelt which is so polluted, the ground work required is simply a sham to get bad land cleaned up by someone else - not the council.

so whats really going on ?

The council wants brown field using first. It costs more. Part of life's problems. You can't blame them.

You can't blame them, but if it were a private developer they would just take them to court and hammer them till they got what they want. The HAs have to work WITH councils which puts them at rather a disadvantage in the beastardry stakes.

the clean up costs make the project unworkable.

plus - it was the council that allowed it to be polluted by the firms they took rates from who used the land. plus our poll tax goes to the local authority to house and supply the population under its control.

so if this deadlock cant work - then what is being provided by the local authority - NOTHING WHATSOEVER.!!!!

where are the millions in poll tax revenues going if its not on public housing and clean up of polluted land ? on internal non jobs probably.....
