Keep Millport houses for island residents

Published: 26 Sep 2012 09:301 comment

There seems to be a strong feeling in Millport that the new amenity houses to be built for North Ayrshire Council should not go to anyone from the mainland.

An islander has written to the Largs & Millport Weekly New to say that "new amenity houses should not be given to pensioners from the mainland."

The resident who did not wish to be named stated in a letter:

"The new houses (in Millport) should be used primarily for pensioners already resident on the island. The island needs an increase in the amount of "sheltered" housing to stop elderly residents that require that little bit of help from being shipped off the island."

Full letter and page of views in the Largs & Millport News of September 26.

    totally agree - just as the new social housing in Largs should be for long term Largs residents
