Lee pledges to help residents living in blocks of flats
One of the key issues facing voters in Penkhull and Stoke in the election on 1 July is improving the blocks of flats in our area.
It’s been clear from speaking to friends and neighbours in the the flats on Honeywall, including Southern Court, Honeywall House, Penkhull Court and Dibden Court, that repairs are urgently needed.
Lee Polshaw, the Labour candidate, is the only one taking these issues seriously. Lee said:
If I’m elected, you can be certain that helping the residents of these blocks will be a priority. The blocks are fast falling into disrepair. There are holes in the floors, broken tiles and areas that need completely repainting. The Conservative council and the former councillor ignored the problems for years. If elected, I’ll make sure these issues are tackled.
There has been antisocial behaviour near the flats, with windows being smashed and acts of vandalism. Many residents are understandably worried about the problems. The issues are worsened by the fact that some of the access doors have been broken. Lee wants to get the issues sorted quickly, saying:
As your Councillor, I’ll never turn a blind eye to these issues, I’ll work with you to fix them. If I’m your Councillor, I’ll work hard to make sure that Penkhull and Stoke are the best they can be. I will be a community champion who listens to the residents all year round, not just at election time.
