LOCKDOWN ON PORTWAY – HOW VULNERABLE TENANTS WERE IMPRISONED IN THEIR HOMES BY HEARTLESS COUNCIL!

Not content with trying to evict people for being too poor under Bedroom Tax provisions, now the council is placing elderly tenants with disabilities under HOUSE ARREST – and charging them full rent for the privilege.

The shocking situation has unfolded in Shirehampton’s VALERIAN CLOSE, where Bovis Homes Ltd has been building new council homes to replace old prefabs. Typically everything has not run to schedule.

Whilst all 21 properties have now been completed, the road and pathways remain untarmaced – TRAPPING RESIDENTS, several of whom cannot walk unaided, in their homes, and preventing carers from being able to properly access the houses.

Is this any way to treat our Bristolian elders?

    Er, I live on Valerian Close and no-one was trapped in there homes :/ The road had a temporary surface on it for 6 months after council tenants were housed there but by no means did I ever see anyone ‘trapped’- there has not been 1 day where cars could not drive on the street…

      We’ve checked with our sources and confirmed the story. There were residents who were trapped and whose carers were unable to reach them in the manner they should have been.
