Darren works with council to secure Lawrence Weston site

MP for Bristol North West, Darren Jones recently (16th May 2019) shared a number of constituent concerns about the former Rockwell Care Home on Corbet Close (due to be sold to Curo for housing) in Lawrence Weston. The site had become a target of vandalism, smashed windows and trespass. Following contacting the council, Darren was advised:

People have been systematically breaking into the building and trashing it. We have responded to this and boarded up windows and doors however they are continuing to break in. Local residents are of course concerned.

To combat this, we are getting the building and the adjacent bungalow hoarded and all internal windows boarded up. We are in the process of doing this and are making every effort for this to be done as quickly as possible. We are also in the process of getting an alarm installed.

Darren said:

“I would like to thank the community in Lawrence Weston for contacting me about this issue.  It is good to see the council acting swiftly to make the site safe and secure. I hope these actions are taken quickly so residents feel safe in the area they live.”
