When too many of HMO are added into residential areas it could possibly spoil the demographics of the area.
Presumably someone has to care for the outside of the properties, clean windows, take in parcels etc. I only have personal knowledge of one which does look rather unkempt in comparison with other properties.
So Council Watcher, are you not in agreement that the buildings should have been secured & weatherproofed. Should they have been left to fall down for lack of volunteers or staff to open them?
Have you yourself thought about volunteering to help keep these places open for public viewing? There aren’t many lead miners, iron workers, mill workers left & even coal miners & steelworkers are getting fewer by the day.
All I am trying to say is that at least they are still standing & that is mostly down to Council & volunteers.
We do still have Kings Mill, Nant Mill, Minera Lead Mines, Bersham Iron Works, Bersham School etc for future use if/when the county becomes more prosperous. If the council hadn’t taken on the care-taking role & buildings hadn’t been weather proofed, they would have deteriorated until they had to be demolished as with some privately owned buildings. Austerity has meant that some services had to be prioritised. After all we would complain our bins weren’t emptied.
Jimbow, as the Mayor attended the Service of Remembrance yesterday, are you saying that the British Legion should pay him for his attendance & the 1001 charitable events that he attends, that the charities should pay for his services?
It would be better for landlords certainly but is it fair to treat people on benefits different to those in work? Working people with young families struggle too. As Matt said, paying for the roof over your head is your first priority.
We in the north of Wales are already health tourists to England. Alder Hey, Broad Green, Christies, Gobowen to name a few hospitals we use. Some of us realised that the Welsh Assembly in charge of the NHS in Wales wouldn’t work for north of the country.
I suspect that it is what Councillor X is trying to say.
