Believe it when I see it: I can’t sell my house

LAST week you ran an article suggesting the Coalite plant at Shuttlewood will be replaced by 800 homes – I’ll believe it when I see it!

I’d be surprised if anyone would want to bring up a family on there, given it was once declared ‘the most polluted site in the world’.

Don’t get me wrong, I am delighted somebody has decided to take up the challenge of cleaning this area up, and I for one hope this comes off, as I have been trying to sell my own house for the best part of four years without any success – all owning to this awful hovel of an eyesore.
