I own a property on Beever Street Goldthorpe and have been made aware of the proposed demolition of the odd numbers 1 – 37 by Barnsley Council.
The street has suffered years of neglect which makes it virtually impossible to let. Every house gets broken into and trashed. The council and police do nothing, leaving landlords to foot the bill for a mortgage, the damage, shuttering the properties and then the council has the temerity to charge 150% council tax for a long term empty!
The proposed compulsory purchase orders will only give landlords the current market value, leaving many of us massively out of pocket through no fault of our own
What can I and other landlords in the street do?
