A group of residents from North Lincolnshire is campaigning to save 16 homes in Haxey from demolition. They are owned by North Lincolnshire Homes who say there is no longer any demand for them because they are too old fashioned.
Campaigners who live nearby say there are people who would move into them straight away if they were available to let. They also say they have the backing of 100 people who want the buildings to be saved and believe the decision to take them down is ill-thought-out and short-sighted.
North Lincolnshire Homes took ownership of the properties in 2007 when they say half stood empty. Following a review of their portfolio a decison has been taken to demolish the buildings rather than attempt to renovate them though they have no definite plans for what will replace them.
