ROK and new social housing in Porthleven
Many will be aware that ROK has gone into administration. This is in itself bad news, but this may affect Porthleven slightly more than other Towns. This is because the 30 social rental homes that are currently being in Porthleven are being built by this company. I am on the understanding from various phone calls and e-mails that I sent/made today that work has stopped.
It is not all bad news, as from those discussions that took place, Cornwall Council via DCHA are confident that a new contractor will be found to finish off these much needed houses. This may take a few weeks or worse case a month or so until its been sorted out via the administrators. I have been assured that these houses will be completed and available to local people via the Home-choice scheme.
I shall keep you informed as soon as I know further details.
