Reply from WDH today:

WDH has always stated that should we be able to provide new properties for old instead of improving existing properties we would attempt to do so. Whilst working with Strata to see if this was feasible for Verner Street some properties became empty and as soon as this happened they were stripped of piping, boilers etc.  These properties therefore then needed major improvement work before being brought to a lettable standard.  Therefore WDH had to 'board up' the properties until we were sure we would not be demolishing them to build new homes.  Any major spend on those properties prior to that decision being made would have been a waste of resources.
Now we know we will be improving the estate to the Wakefield Standard, and those empty homes will be improved, with the rest of the estate, and let as soon as possible.
I hope that answers your query.
