Action to improve Fallodon House

Posted: 12/03/09

Local Labour Councillors have asked City West Homes to bring forward urgent plans to improve conditions in Westbourne Ward after receiving the following report;

”The "communal garden" is little more than a dog toilet and the stink in hot weather makes the adjacent private gardens unusable. The boundary fence has collapsed. Each Carnival, fencing has to be erected; it would be cheaper in the long run to install proper fencing which would also solve the intermittent problem of prostitutes and drug-users/dealers using the gardens. The internal and external paintwork is shabby. The bin doors are devoid of paint and show signs of previous (bodged) repairs.”


Following our representations City West Homes has now agreed to consult residents on the long overdue and necessary improvements which will include;


  • Roof replacement
  • Repairs to the internal walls where there have been water leaks
  • Communal decorations
  • New floor coverings
  • Replacement/repair of windows
  • Repair of the broken boundary fence
