Unfinished Dwellings in Heol Berwyn, Cefn Mawr

Volume 624: debated on Tuesday 18 April 2017

The petition of residents of Cefn Mawr in the constituency of Clywd South,

Declares that the petitioners believe that it is unacceptable that Harron Homes has only part finished the construction of residential dwellings in Heol Berwyn, Cefn Mawr; further declares that part finished construction sites may become magnets for anti-social behaviour and infestations of rats due to partially constructed sewers; and further that such part finished construction sights are a blight upon communities.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to declare and enforce that part finished construction sites be completed, sold outright, part sold or gifted to the Local Authority or a Housing Association.

And the petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Susan Elan Jones, Official Report, 8 March 2017; Vol. 622, c. 910.]


Observations from the Secretary of State for Wales (Alun Cairns):

Housing policy and the decision-making process for planning applications for housing developments in Wales are devolved and the responsibility of the relevant Local Authorities, the Welsh Government and their agencies.
