Sitting directly north of the East Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber has a history strongly connected to the steel, coal and farming industries. Although still a major player in the UK’s energy industry, the region is still adjusting to the move towards cleaner fuels and cheap steel imports. However, Leeds is a thriving finance and business hub, while Sheffield has enjoyed a strong resurgence in recent years as a centre for the creative arts and music. Grimsby is the centre of the UK’s fishing industry, with agriculture and food processing also providing a major source of income for the region.
This development could be awesome. Great convenient shops, places to eat, school and public transport. Yet, the development in terms of how it looks is both looking and working , some 3 years on is disgraceful. Dead / Badly planted trees, open spaces fenced off and basically ‘builder tips’ grass verges left, , (i cut them adjacent to my plot) drains are full of rubble, lack of topsoil makes grass, shrubs difficult to grow, especially the ones nocked over by the tradesmen, who drive over verges to miss parked cars, or, trees planted in concrete, the use of sub soil as apposed to good top soil, and which in turn causes flooded areas because surface water cant drain away effectively.. its like IKEA DOES MEAU RISE, BUILT BY LOGO. It has potential to be a great area, but the lack of affective governance, management, control, responsibility is shocking
Please review your development:
BUYER BEWARE Sale staff sell you something, you buy something else. The aftercare is very poor, lots of maladministration, complaints are not investigated fully. The finish is poor quality.snags/faults raised are either ignored or left in a wore state than before their Handyman” had a go. Appointments fail, go unaddressed. Homegroup were charging residents an estate management fee, + their Fee, for work not even started,( 3 years now) that they are not contracted to do, and they Didn’t Know MEADFLEET had not Taken Over (google MF) drainage blocked Builders Waist, See Hull Daily Mail. Yorkshire water technical say buiders have serious questions to answer” Homegroup misrepresent factual information, deny access to data, and mislead Processes Like Information Commissioner.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The Misrepresentation Of The Management Covenant ( Legal Experts Say It Is The Next PPI Scandal)
The HOMEGROUP , Would not breach/break their contract, refuse me copies of my plot file,
That A Credible After sales Team Would Work As Promised/ Contracted To.
The shear lack pf governance.
The NHBC is there to serve the developer, formost.
That there was a credible complaints procedure.
That record keeping/data was correct.
That, the 106 agreement would be adhered to.
