Letter to Editor: Five Acres resident reflects on “long hard battle”
Politics / Thu 17th Nov 2022 at 07:25am
IT has been a long hard battle, but with our little team of leaseholders we have at last succeeded. For us it was so obvious right from the start that there was something fundamentally wrong with the whole set up. The way the schedule of works was composed, this must have cost one hell of a lot of money as there was folders and folders of it, without even a proper survey carried out to identify what may need doing.
To the total lack of competitive tenders, only 2 tenders were obtained for the 1.2 million pound works and there was less than £2000 difference between them. We have been continually fobbed off with stock answers to points and questions we have raised over the months, and even these were sometimes difficult to come by,
At last with the aid of the likes Robert Halfon MP, and a few honest and caring councillors we have now been listened too. There has been a lot of extremely stressed and worried leaseholders who can now relax and enjoy the forthcoming season of goodwill.
