Sell My House Quickly in Shepherd’s Bush
Sell My House Quickly found another interesting article about Shepherd’s Bush. Ceiling caves-in at scandal-hit Prospect House.
Residents of Prospect House—an emblem of horrific housing across Britain—have reported new, worsening conditions.
People are forced to live in a dangerous environment on the bank of the six-lane North Circular in Brent, north London. They are housed in a converted office block, owned by a private landlord and managed by Shepherds Bush Housing Association.
Socialist Worker revealed their conditions back in 2019. The story spread as an example of the horrific state of housing in Britain.
Yet nearly two years on, the residents say conditions are getting worse.
Water started leaking through the ceiling on the first floor on Thursday of last week. By Friday evening the ceiling had bowed and the carpet was sodden.
Residents were then forced to ring to the fire bridge after a lack of action by Shepherd’s Bush Housing Association.
The converted office block doesn’t sustain the 15 families, who are often left without hot water and heating.
They have taken to social media to complain about the building’s conditions. Shepherd’s Bush now checks in with the residents, but residents know it’s “a facade” and are still ignored.
And Brent council has provided little to no support for the soon to be homeless single parents.
The lease is set to run out on the building, but the council has not found the residents new accommodation.
“Private landlords don’t want to accept housing benefits. And I don’t want to leave it last minute and have to go wherever Brent council dump me,” she told Socialist Worker.
