Coed Dyffryn Children’s Pla
Posted by Hughesie from Aberdare on the 16th June 2018
This discussion is about the House builder Persimmon. Persimmon built and sold their houses on false promises; the promises were to replace a ranch style fence that was supposedly to stop children accessing the river Cynon. The second promise and part of Persimmon’s marketing strategy was to provide a children’s play area and is evident by the area being shown on the marketing brochure.
Persimmon began building houses in the summer of 2010, a pumping station was already in place presumably to service the ASDA superstore.
persimmon began to build and sell houses and paid no respect to the fact that as houses were being bought and lived in; notwithstanding the extra sewage and surface drainage being generated, persimmon neglected to update the previous installation; this caused some residents to suffer a backwash of sewage into their homes.
The building of new homes had since been completed some two years ago. The promised new Ranch style wood fences are now rotten and falling apart.
Coed Dyffryn residents have approached Persimmon and asked that they build the promised Children’s play area as displayed on their marketing brochure; the house builder replied that this was not possible due to a delay in updating the pump station. Excuse after excuse followed. The play area was turned into a dumping ground and is now as I write this discussion item is a veritable eyesore. Our AM Vikki Howells has taken this complaint further but Persimmon are not worried one iota!
further excuses appeared, the latest Being ASDA owned the road that services the retail outlets. The drainage system needs to be updated before Persimmon/Welsh Water will update the Pumping Station. ASDA people have communicated with our community Councillor Jeff Elliot and said work will begin sometime mid June. No sign of forewarnings such as the disruption to residents of Coed Dyffryn and Bus service customers who shop at ASDA store.
where will all this end? ITV Wales has filmed the eyesore and interviewed residents. We are waiting for the film to be edited and hopefully aired within a week or two.
i won’t hold my breath but I’ll carry on Campaigning.
