Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THERE is "com­mu­nity hous­ing" and "com­mu­nity hous­ing".

Be­hind my home in Red­cliffe lives a mum and three chil­dren. Her front yard is far ti­dier and cleaner than many pri­vate home yards. Her back yard is lush and green.

We have seen her chil­dren grow­ing up and they are beau­ti­ful, re­spect­ful chil­dren.

In the same street is an­other home that I saw empty for months as it was be­ing re­paired from a pre­vi­ous ten­ant.

It was done up and much money would have been spent on it.

It is now back to a dis­gust­ing mess. Ev­ery now and again, a bin is there and a clean-up held but the tidi­ness does not last long.

I would hate to live over the road.

There­fore, good and bad in com­mu­nity hous­ing; it de­pends on the ten­ants, so do not bad mouth the hous­ing.

Homeswest should do some­thing about the ten­ants. Name and ad­dress sup­plied. post­marked Jan­uary 31 on the en­ve­lope. It did not ar­rive un­til Fe­bru­ary 16.

I send an air­mail let­ter to the UK ev­ery Sun­day. It ar­rives in Manch­ester on the fol­low­ing Satur­day.

I can­not be­lieve post in Aus­tralia for Aus­tralian peo­ple since Jan­uary. I can­not see it get­ting any bet­ter. M.V. FRANCE, Edge­wa­ter.
