Redrow Homes, Crofton



I have been contacted by a large number of constituents who have reported to me serious concerns surrounding the Redrow housing development in Crofton.

Concerns residents have raised with me include the working times– with works beginning both earlier and finishing later than agreed, the delivery of large items of equipment outside of the agreed hours and on Sundays, damage to the surrounding area’s grass verges and footpaths and bad language and shouting from the workmen on the site – which I find particularly offensive and inappropriate for any area in which many families reside.

I have been working with your local Wakefield District Councillors Maureen Cummings, Faith Heptinstall and Albert Manifield in taking up your concerns and we are fighting hard to make sure all of my constituents complaints are heard and dealt with.

I have written to Redrow Homes, the Health and Safety Executive and the Council to raise these concerns and have also been calling for a meeting with Executives of Redrow Homes so that these concerns can be raised directly. I now believe this meeting will be taking place very soon.
