Two houses in Bassett that have been left empty are being allowed to go to rack and ruin on the golf course. Bassett campaigner Richard Blackman has written to the Cabinet member responsible for housing on Southampton City Council to ask why this situation has been allowed to go on for so long.
Richard Blackman commented:
"I would like to see local families living in these homes. At the recent General Election the Lib Dems manifesto planned the building of 100,000 social homes per year across the country to solve the nation's housing crisis. At the very least the Council should be making full use of existing housing stock."
