The grass isn’t al­ways greener

This is my so-called back gar­den, that the West of Scot­land Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion has been try­ing to fix for two years.

I live in new build in Fern­hill and thought up un­til re­cently I was the only one hav­ing prob­lems with very poor drainage and so called turf.

How­ever, I have found out there is a lot more like me hav­ing prob­lems even go­ing back to first phase of houses that was built, not only this but peo­ple are hav­ing prob­lems with gas boil­ers and floors that creak re­ally bad.

I found out on the Fern­hill Face­book page that I was not alone. All th­ese prob­lems Coun­cil­lor Robert Brown has been help­ing us out with, in our bat­tle with the West of Scot­land.

This as­so­ca­tion have been the most dif­fi­cult hous­ing I have ever dealt with in my life, they drag ev­ery com­plaint out for months and in my case years.

Hope­fully next year I will have a back gar­den I can go into with­out Wellington boots. DON (Name and ad­dress sup­plied)
