Letter: What’s happening to derelict Walmer houses?

As a home owner in Villiers Road, Walmer, I am concerned at the number of houses that are being taken apart piece by piece in the street between Third and Fourth avenues. These houses are derelict and seem abandoned.

My concern is that as a home owner I haven’t received any correspondence from the municipality as to what has been approved in place of these houses.

On the corner of Third Avenue and Villiers Road there is a block of flats being erected and again I only knew about it once other residents brought it to my attention.

The developer has applied for 72 units to be build. We have objected and building has stopped, but to date no further correspondence has been received.

Surely houses can’t just be demolished and left not maintained? Some clarity would be appreciated.
