"M&S and Tesco more important than homes"
We covered the threat to homes from Ceredigion County Council last August and as far back as November 2011. The article above shows the horrible attitude of the Council and it is stunning that they are trying to force someone out of their home with a Compulsory Purchase Order, in order to build more shops. This seems to be a hypocritical case of putting the interests of big business over human rights.
If you love your home you won't want to leave it, yet the council want to imply that the fault is with a homeowner since they won't 'negotiate'. There is no 'negotiation', what the Council means is that someone refuses to give up their home due to Council bullying. And now the County Council is stepping up their bullying tactics and threatening to remove the home by legal force. Such hypocrisy. It would probably be different if it was a councillor’s home.
