LibDem council holding back progress on Prescot Drive

When are the council going to do something about the derelict properties on Prescot Drive? Those great big houses are falling down, burnt out and derelict and yet local developers are ready, cheque book in hand, to buy them up and start working on them, turning them into real homes. Months ago the LibDem leader of the council came to visit the area and promised he would do something, but since then things have got even worse.

Louise said "Those houses are a symbol of shame. I am backing local people’s fight to force the council to act. Not only would it make the area look so much better and create much needed new homes, but having more homes there would also put pressure on the council to tackle the problems of anti-social behaviour at that end of the park."
