Neglected Garages Usk Close

Recommended Posts

The garages in Usk Close Redhill are a complete disgrace! These unmaintained garages not only make the surrounding area look terrible but are also an advert to invite vandalism.  

 

Who owns or is responsible for these garages? Would this be Hereford Housing?

The decline of Britain. We will soon be a third world state, where nobody cares especially in authority.

Surely people have been paying rent for these garages?

if not, has nobody reported this to the council?

 

You will probably find that the garages that are in desperate need of repair are the ones that are not currently not being rented! These are owned by Hereford Housing, not the Council. I have written to HH to highlight the poor state of these garages requesting that they be properly repaired and maintained.

I see that the garages that I previously photographed above have at least now been boarded up, this is a result of me highlighting this issue with HH however, I am surprised that HH chose to board them up rather than replace the broken doors with new making it all in keeping with the rest, boards to me only encourage graffiti and vandalism. Maybe they have ordered new doors..

I'm not surprised at all that they have not been replaced looking at what happened to the last ones

Well I feel sorry for the other people renting these garages, if they cannot be bothered to replace broken doors they may as well knock the lot down.

A little unfair on the people who are renting the other garages, if they repaired the broken door then it could encourage new tenants but as it is, I do not think I would feel confident about leaving my car in these garages.

All of the Council garages have 6ft 6" doors,ok if you have a mini but any other vehicle you have no chance of getting in and out properly.

Most are used for storage
