A PUBLIC meeting is to be held to seek a solution for residents living in Forgewood who are losing their housing factor services due to landlords running up six-figure debts.

The Times revealed that Link Group will withdraw their services from blocks in phase two and three of Woodvile Rise due to non-payment of fees totalling £160,000.

A meeting will be held in Braidhurst High School on Thursday, September 1, at 7pm to discuss the issue.

Residents living in 21 of the 47 blocks are affected and they have been given three months notice.

Link will continue to carry out repairs of a health and safety nature and insurance works while also continuining with close cleaning and landscaping before the contract ends on October 31.
