Please see my first post, I said ‘SOME’

Waste of time asking Labour Binnersley or Taylor as it was Labour that caused the demise of Girnhill lane. The shuttered houses on Verner are getting Re-let but require work doing in them first,If WDH were more selective with some of the tenants they put in it could be a good estate, after all the houses are not that old its just some residents wreck them but they’d also wreck the new houses

Wasn't aimed at you in particular Whistleblower, it's just that people are quick to presume that all Verner residents are bad, (I know from experience of people talking) just wanted to point out that there are some good people there  Grin

 "Thought it was 2012 G?"  To find the exact date would be very useful for the residents. Smiley

The 55 homes on the WDH website appear to be missing a detail. A handful of residents have been picked to have a survey carried out on their homes. The results will apparently determine if there are improvements or demolition.

There are quite a few empty and some have been empty for weeks. Strange how WDH don't seem to be letting them when there's a severe housing shortage. I keep checking homesearch and they haven't shown on there

Oddly enough there are still a lot of empty houses on Verner. Brentwood it now a memory, am left wondering what's next....Boarded up houses, no sign of the refit or gas main....a cynic could start drawing conclusions as to where the bull dozers will be hitting next?

If anything was ever going to be dirty it will be now. It is definitely a time to get all the facts before believing the press.
There appears to a whole boat load of information suddenly appearing on the net as to what is going on around Verner and Girnhill. Why would be a good question? There are probably loads of theories.
What has cropped up of note to your point is Strata in 2011 offering to part develop Verner. The information behind this would be a good read if anyone has it.
The gas pipe is still is one of a few keys to the plot. Again public realm says April 2012 and then August 2012.
It doesn’t take a computer nerd to dig a little and find that the new shift in political power has opened up gaps. Sure you can work out why. Keep diging!

I have to agree the "the google Queen" I have spent hours trawling and have only found old snippets of data. Am wondering if doing things the old fashioned way and writting a letter may be the way to proceed.

http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/governmentcitizensandrights/yourrightsandresponsibilities/dg_4003239

Has anyone ever done a Freedom of Info request to WDH? Am not too sure how it would stand as if I understand it right they are a charity rather than local auth body?

Out of interest has anyone heard whats happening with the last 3 houses on Girnhill? Has the CPO decision been made?

It’s so refreshing to see honest investigation and time spent searching for the truth. You are correct with your lines of thought.
The pen is very often mightier than the sword and again is a good way to find the facts.
I am sure you will find what your looking for very quickly. Grin

WDH are working with northern gas networks to employ a contractor to install a gas supply to verner st,the tender went out last week with a 4 week deadline for return,it is hoped that when the contract is signed the work will start mid july and will take 6-7 weeks to complete,information is being put together to keep the residents updated.
 It is then proposed that the property improvements will begin towards the end of this year,the empty houses are to remain empty until improvement work is completed  Grin
