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?
