Rochdale’s MP makes it clear to RBH bosses that Seven Sisters must not be demolished

28 March 2017

Simon Danczuk, Rochdale’s MP, has attended a consultation hosted by RBH to discuss the future of College Bank Flats and Falinge Estate.

During the meeting, Simon Said: “I spoke to a number of residents, none of whom were happy about demolition”.

He also made it clear to RBH face-to-face that he disagrees with RBH’s mismanagement of the flats and is opposed to their plan to demolish the buildings.

Simon said: “I agree with senior management that people aren’t queuing up at my surgery for a place in College Bank Flats. However, they certainly are queuing up in my surgery to complain about poor management of the flats, which is where the real problem lies. If the flats were better managed, then they would be more desirable places to live”.

He added: “This whole approach is typical of the attitude of Rochdale Boroughwide Housing. The whole senior management needs shaking up, which I made clear to Noel Chambers, Chair of RBH, when we met earlier this month".
