Action pledge on Darwen eyesore homes
4:07pm Monday 30th September 2013 in News
SUNNYHURST councillor Dave Smith has called for urgent action to renovate 14 houses in Queen Street, Darwen.
The properties are being sold to Twin Valley Homes after being dropped from a borough clearance programme.
At Blackburn with Darwen’s full council forum meeting, Coun Smith said residents were fed up with the eyesores in their neighbourhood.
The social housing firm plans to renovate them to prepare them for affordable rent or sale.
Coun Smith told borough housing boss Yusuf Jan-Virmani: “I would appeal to you to get something done about them as soon as possible.”
Coun Jan-Virmani said: “We are doing everything we can.”
