The Council have decided to renege on promises due to Government cuts. Promised purchases of homes on Wilfred Street will now not go ahead. Residents planning on moving have been notified that any agreed in principle sale will now not be continued. One couple had already agreed a purchase price on a house elsewhere.
It’s an absolute disgrace. Cameron promised people that urban regeneration schemes were safe in Tory hands and housing minister Grant Shapps stated that housing market renewal areas were priority schemes that he was impressed with.
