Fitzroy house bath asked to leave their homes without adequate homes available to people to give this shocking news to people of this age without thinking through the impact, or a rehousing strategy and a plan to make the property safe prior to informing them of the decision so far there has been no communication only information. this is not the way a major player in the field of sheltered housing would deal with this situation.

lovely to meet you all & thank you sandra and pat for the welcome will keep checking on
Here at Dryleaze court the main building comprising 33 units is only 48% occupied and some of the unoccupied units have fallen into disrepair.
The remaining units are occupied predominantly by very aged and vulnerable people and despite requests by us for SDC to advise us of what the future is for this building nothing is forthcoming.
We have since May 2014 followed the SDC complaints procedure culminating in appealing to our local MP Geoffrey Clifton-Brown,
Geoffrey came to the scheme on Saturday 7 February to listen to the tenants here and he took time to view the building and some of the unoccupied units.
You will see from the extract from his weekly newsletter below that he has already written to the Chief Executive, David Hagg about our plight.
Geoffrey Clifton– Brown is the MP for Wotton-under-Edge and Minchinhampton – he did listen and was proactive in his response.
Just sending out a thought process for those of you who have concerns and are not sure where to turn – the SDC complaints procedure although lengthy can produce results –alternatively attend your local MP’s surgery you could be pleasantly surprised especially at this time!!
Lest we forget; Geoffrey Clifton-Brown is the first and only MP or prospective MP who has shown any interest in the plight of sheltered tenants in the Stroud District.

I have once again had a busy week in both the constituency and in Westminster.
Over the weekend I met with residents of Dryleaze Court to hear their many concerns about the way Stroud District Council has been managing the properties there. I have written in the strongest terms to the Chief Executive of the Council in support of the residents.
