Quite often not all is revealed at WDH forums. WDH do hold other meetings. At one of these was given an update of the full situation. The minutes should be public realm in about 6 weeks.
The facts surrounding 2012 appear not to have been discussed at your meetings.
By 2012 WDH must complete many home upgrades including Verner Street. 2012 is not a vague deadline but an issue of concern for WDH to complete all works or be seen to fall short. None completion will incur penalties. 2012 is only 18 months away.

WDH have delayed Verner Street repairs because of the Girnhill estate. The idea was to move residents out to Girnhill whilst a full refurbishment/ demolition was carried out. Demolition is mentioned because it is a possibility due to the size of improvements required. As you can see there are no new houses on Girnhill to move to nor will there be for at least a year at best.
There is also another problem. Gas, or the lack of a gas main. Before any works start on Verner a gas main has to be installed. This will not be laid until Girnhill is ready to start. The fact that other areas are without gas has significance also.

So the fact is that there is a hell of a lot to happen in a short space of time to meet the Verner Street deadline. There is a solution…. Its called a bulldozer. No houses means no problems for WDH.
