Melbury has been completed for four years and is still not adopted. It took ten years for Warkworth Woods to get adopted by the council. This is bad news for the rest of the Great Park, including us.
We pay full rates, but are not getting all council services. If you sell your home before adoption it can cause a hitch and you may need rather expensive indemnity insurance. Please support our fellow Great Park residents in their drive to get adopted. There is a paper petition at the Community Centre which you can sign – please ask when you are there, its not much effort to exert some people power.
You can also sign the epetition on the council’s web site at :http://democracy.newcastle.gov.uk/mgEPetitionDisplay.aspx?ID=17&RPID=1995621&HPID=1995621. It is in all our interests to stand together on this one.
