Hi, does anyone know if it's possible for a private home owner to influence/tell/insist/decide for the council on who goes into a council property? Some of these new build home owners (and others) must be wondering where they've moved too!! Scenes from 70's film 'KES' spring to mind. There's a long term Bowburn resident couple i know who live close to 'pikey' like tenants and they must be sick as pigs having to put up with the goings on. At their time in life they should be relaxing and enjoying the comfort of their home and garden, not putting up with bonfires and shouting/fighting all the time!!

I live on the grange estate and i think at the moment it is the best estate i have lived on. You get different people on ALL estates. Buy to let landlords, dhss, foreigners, but in my opinion the worst people are the ones who THINK they are better than anyone else and those are the ones who complain the most about a certain class of person. If these people think they are middle and upper class then i suggest you move to an area where you think you will fit in, but i dare bet the residents of estates such as those will think that the dregs of the earth have moved in next to them.
Thanks for your input grangeresident but it doesn't help much, and as for people being snobby, far from it thank you very much.
The point i,m trying to put over is that there is a retired couple who are spending more time away at their caravan than in their own home/garden, 'probably' due to the fact they are a bit sick and tired of their neighbours antics. If you think it's normal to sit around a fire drinking and shouting all day and night perhaps you should do a house swap! I,m sure my neighbour will be chuffed to bits to live on an estate as quiet as yours, who knows, i might move there myself (though i can't afford too), and let's not forget there are other pensioners along the street who deserve a quiet life, not waking up on a morning afraid of what they will find on their front gardens. I'm sure you'll agree that when you come to retire after a long hard working career you too will be looking for a bit of peace and quiet too.
p.s. I grew up in the rows and there's a bit of a difference between kids then, running around and getting told off, and todays 'young adults', i,m sure you'll agree.

I am not long for retirement myself and if i have neighbours like this, as i have had in the past, i will be doing something about it and not hiding away in my caravan, if i had one. All it takes is a phone call to complain and if they are not prepared to do that then they will have to suffer. This is why some people get away with what they do. Some people live in their own little world and have no respect for anyone else these days.

Personally i have no regrets about moving onto this estate, in fact i'm pleased i did. It doesn't matter where you move to, rented accomadation or buying a property, like any move, it's a gamble, you don't know what your new neighbours are going to be like, you don't know if your new neighbours will like you. If it works out, great. If it doesn't work out you can always move again and the gamble starts all over again. I hope you make the right decision for yourself.
