Just home from an excellent residents’ meeting on the Bromford, where I’ve been campaigning hard to get two empty tower blocks detonated. Residents simply cannot believe the council is thinking of returning them to social housing after spending so much emptying them and ‘securing’ them. The big question was if the security costs £10,000 a month, why is their no visible security and drug-dealing in the empty flats. My marching orders from the meeting were clear. Organise some local demostrations, invite Central TV down and dare the head of housing to come and explain what planet they’re on. Watch this space.
