My back garden


By nita


Well got some really annoying news at the weekend, at the back of our garden there is a block of flats which the council want to knock down, when we saw the plans they want to take three quarters of my garden and put a public foot path between me and my neighbours,im so not happy, aslo we will have 2 lots of flats and 4 houses built in my neighbours garden. They (council) have said that my back garden will be for used for the new houses bins oh wot joy, my neighbours garden will be a parking lot and 2 houses. As you can tell none of us are happy and will be attending a meeting next week, will keep you informed. x

Oh what a rotten situation. How can they just go ahead and make that kind of decision. That's ridiculous. Its always about money. If they squish things in then they can add a couple of extra flats or homes and therefore gain more cash. You can bet they wouldn't be considering it if it was their back gardens under threat.!! Good luck at the meeting. x

Councils Hey :/ My Parents lost half their garden 20yrs ago along with Friends & Neighbours on the same Council Estate because Council wanted Parking Areas for the Propertys around the Backs? But all its done is made it into a Dumping site for Rubbish & cars that have no MOTs ect ect :( I do hope u can win your case !
