Spartacus That would be true if we were not dong anything about it but that clearly is not the case, the last 24 homes that have become empty are because they have moved to smaller properties up at the new Clos Barbier site, these were all people under occupying. All 42 of the new bungalows at Victoria avenue are all occupied by people who once lived in family homes to large for them, many at the old bus garage development are in small apartments because they once under occupied family homes. The same is true of Delancy Court and Rosair so I am afraid your charge is unfounded do we still have some yes we do and when the second phase of the Bouet is finished and the new Brock road development, we will have more smaller units to move those people to, freeing up more family homes. How can having a waiting and transfer list be inefficient? You might be able to argue that it is because of a lack of social housing and I would agree with you. also the refurbishment of properties is not wasteful and you have to empty them to do so, that’s like saying all the homes we demolished was a wasteful exercise, Cour du Parc has been empty longer than we would have likes I will grant you but we work with the resources available and GHA are working on that site now. I am not aware of properties that are empty for years some take time to refurbish because they are completely gutted after being continually occupied for decades. But taking the Corporate Housing programme as a whole, I am extremely pleased with the way it has gone. There is still much more to do. On your last point I think the press did publish the list (Ed can you help?) I have to say you really are all over the place, make up your mind what you want to have a go about and I can direct you to the right people.
