Plea from Glanaman's 'forgotten' estate
6:20am Wednesday 11th April 2012 in News
RESIDENTS of a Glanaman estate say they have been “forgotten” by Carmarthenshire county council.
People living on Ger-yr-Afon maintain their road needs resurfacing and their houses need repainting.
And they claim that an acute lack of road salt means elderly residents are “imprisoned”
in their homes during icy winter spells.
“We feel we are the estate the county council has forgotten,” pensioner Haydn Davies told the Guardian.
“Our complaints have fallen on deaf ears and we feel we’re being treated like second-class citizens. All the houses need a coat of paint – it’s demoralising to see how these properties have been neglected.”
But housing servicesmanager Les James insisted the estate had benefited from a number of works.
“Works carried out so far include new kitchens and bathrooms and cavity and wall insulation,” he said.
“Works to properties involving external painting will be carried out by 2015, although the date has yet to be finalised."
