Homes work being rushed

First published in Letters

I completely sympathise with all undergoing any work on behalf of Newport City Homes. They have rushed the investment programme to show the Welsh Government that they are complying with the WHQS. However, the blame lies with Newport City Council, as they have not monitored Newport City Homes’ performance. Perhaps if NCH and the council worked closer together, none of these problems would occur

Who is undergoing work "on behalf of" Newport City Homes? The letter is nonsensical!

There are concerns checks are not being made on the quality of work being done. Works have been carried out and left uncompleted and no-one comes to check it out. One woman cannot hang curtains or blinds in a bathroom because the sink is up against the window, another family had a drain fixed and the apart from the channel being put in it has been left and unfinished and that WAS checked. Also NO support is being offered to disabled tenants. Deaf families are expected to pay for their own. which would cost more than the works !
