ASH­FORD coun­cil head of hous­ing Tracey Kerly said they were con­cerned about Ms Farmer’s hous­ing po­si­tion and had ev­ery sym­pa­thy with her. She said: “We have been work­ing hard to try to re­solve the sit­u­a­tion since be­ing in­formed of her change of cir­cum­stances. Hav­ing re­ceived the de­tailed in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing her child’s health and needs we have been able to re­assess her ap­pli­ca­tion which has been iden­ti­fied as a sig­nif­i­cant pri­or­ity. “Our choice-based let­tings process op­er­ates fort­nightly. “The in­for­ma­tion con­firm­ing the re­quire­ments of Ms Farmer and her daugh­ter came only four weeks ago al­low­ing only two al­lo­ca­tions of prop­er­ties be­tween then and now. “We cur­rently have a num­ber of press­ing de­mands on the lim­ited num­ber of suit­able avail­able prop­er­ties but re­main pos­i­tive that a so­lu­tion can be found and that Ms Farmer and her daugh­ter will be suit­ably housed very soon.”
