ELDERLY residents at a mobile home community claim they are being forced to live with overflowing drains, poor lighting and flooded paths.
They say their landlord refuses to respond to complaints although site owner Ryan Neill insists the area is being maintained properly.
The residents now want Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) to enforce the site licence conditions to get the work done.
Those living at Dunham Hill Park, which is run by Cheshire Park Homes, say they have repeatedly tried to get hold of Mr Neill, who lives in Cambridge, to do essential maintenance work on site, but say they have had no response.
A CWAC spokesman said they have been in touch with the site owner on a number of occasions about a number of problems, which they say have been addressed by the site owner.
Mr Neill told The Chronicle: “The site is maintained to council standards.”
Bert Wilton-King, a resident on the site, disagrees and said the general maintenance is non-existent: “If it was not for the individual residents that routinely do the day-to-day maintenance, the site would become run-down.
“We pay the site owner a monthly pitch fee for the services and maintenance, which is just not done. The council simply condone the owner’s unwillingness to conform to the site licence conditions by not acting.”
Mr Wilton-King said they have an ongoing problem with the sewerage drainage system, which is prone to blockages and frequently backs up into their bathrooms. There is also a lack of drainage of surface water, which means paths are often flooded and the pools remain for days.
He added: “Recently the site owner installed three sets of what I can only describe as ornamental garden lights, which are totally dysfunctional. It just makes it dangerous.”
The maintenance of the site is not the only issue. Before Easter a collection company erected a notice warning residents their electricity could be cut off because the landlord had not paid the bill. Although ScottishPower has reassured them their supply will be maintained, it has left them feeling vulnerable.
Gowy councillor Eleanor Johnson said: “I understand the residents have repeatedly tried to get hold of the landlord, as have I, with no response.
“I have organised a meeting with officers from Cheshire West and Chester to see how we can best help the residents.”
A CWAC spokesman said: “Any issues should always go through the site owner, but obviously if the issues are ongoing and are not being dealt with we can again contact the landlord.”
