JANET Bradbury, Chief Executive of the North Solihull Partnership said they were "committed to minimising the amount of time that a property remains empty prior to demolition".

"However, the re-housing of residents affected by the demolition proposals is very sensitive and it is important that we work closely with residents on a one to one basis to help them move to another home.

"This means that properties within a block do not always become empty at the same time and as a result, cannot be demolished until all of the properties within that block are empty."

Janet said the Partnership recognised the recent problems experienced by residents living near to Dee Walk and were working with Solihull Community Housing and the North Arran Way Residents

Association, to support residents in this area.

"Work is also underway to arrange the clearance of specific overgrown areas in the gardens of empty properties, where these cause concern. We are working with the local police and Anti-social Behaviour Team to look at ways in which we can address the anti-social behaviour that local people are suffering from," she added.
