Home-buyers' anger at unfinished roads
'Hundreds of new homeowners are said to be living on unfinished housing developments and residents claim they are powerless when left with incomplete roads, sometimes without streetlights or pavements.'
Resident Adoption Action Group
'Many councils and water companies are what can only be described in some instances as lethargic with regards to reacting and using their powers to stimulate progress from the offending developer. As hardworking council tax and water rate paying individuals these adopting parties have a duty to us the residents in demonstrating that positive movement towards achievement is achieved. The greatest launch pad to provoking activity in these instances is undoubtedly ......People Power!'
Sowerby Homes Estate - Phases 1 - 3
Further to my blogs of 27th January 2016 and 24th February 2016, I have taken photographs of the road surface along Nocton Park Road, right through to Wegberg Road. Whilst the disruption encountered by the residents on Wegberg Road with regard to Phase 3 of the development is relatively recent, all residents have had to live for a number of years with the unfinished road laid during Phases 1 and 2, which still hasn't been completed with a top surface.
Residents of Nocton Park will draw their own conclusions from the experience of living on this estate and having to navigate the many raised manholes, grids and avoiding potholes and surface water/dirt along this unfinished access road.
