Hounslow Homes is, through a contractor, removing asbestos from facia of its properties in the Dudley Road, Fawns Manor Road area of Bedfont and retiling the roofs.
Hounslow Homes did not give prior warning to owners (or people renting privately) who had bought their property from the council. Nor did it offer advice and information, or even the facility to have this work done to their property at a price to be paid by the owner. Are people in Hounslow paying for this work through their council taxes or from money taken from their renting account, or from a grant elsewhere such as the EEC?
No one is told or informed of anything. It is about time Hounslow Homes came clean about the dangers and cost and how this was being met. The disturbance in the area has been quite considerable, especially in Fawns Manor Road where there are a number of disabled and older people.
To get answers and aid from Hounslow Homes has been more than difficult.
