ANGRY residents say "it is disgusting" that work at a city housing estate has not been finished properly.

Weogoran Park still has a number of issues years after building work originally began.

Unfinished roads with high kerbs and drains, street lights not switched on and crumbling pavements causing tripping hazards including potholes are just some of the issues residents of the St Modwen-built estate have been complaining about.

One resident who lives in Beltex Drive said: "It is dark at night around here. The street lights haven't been switched on and there is a cone outside my house which is where a street light is meant to be.

"I have tripped up outside, because of the crumbling pavement.

"It just looks rubbish, and it is meant to be a new estate."

Another Beltex Drive resident said: "Every time it rains the water flows down the road and gathers at the bottom.

"We have lived here 18 months, there have been broken promises when it will be finished. You just end up getting used to, but it isn't right."

A Dalesbred Place resident said: "The footpaths outside mine were done 18 months ago. I thought finally they would then tarmac the road, but they didn't. 

"It is disgusting it has been left in that state."

Another resident said: "The developer has moved onto another development and basically left ours unfinished and unsafe.

"Around two thirds of the fitted street lights don't work, you can't walk through the estate safely as you can't see where you are walking and the pavements are littered with trip hazards.

"They have given us multiple dates over the last two years about finishing all these elements, but they never do, they just ignore the dates and fob us all off. "

The 120-home Weogoran Park development has had various issues over the years, including in April when residents said the issue of builders parking around the estate had got so bad they were being forced to wait more than 20 minutes on the busy Whittington Road section of the dual carriageway because traffic has been reduced to one-way in Romney Way - the access road to the site.

St Modwen was contacted for comment but were unable to respond before our deadline.
