Leave us alone in our homes

SIR - I would like to question the article concerning the possible demolition of 60 aluminium bungalows in Campfield Way and Highover Road (The Comet, September 7) which featured quite extensively what Mr Concannon had to say about listing by English Heritage. Alas they are in imminent danger of falling down!

As far as listing goes, of course there are rules and regulations, which have been set by English Heritage, but they are not as hard or fast as Concannon has made out.

Regarding his statement about the disintegration of our bungalows, he has obviously ignored the recent survey, which was carried out by building experts, that our homes are still in a very good condition.

If he still has the time to spare, perhaps he could show me any that are in such a bad state.

Lastly, as far as my wife and I are aware, the majority of the Hawksley Estate residents just want to stay exactly where they are, exactly in the same home and be left alone!
