Dear Sir,

I just want to state for the record my home is not for sale at any price! My husband and I are hoping to retire in a few years and as my mortgage will soon be paid off we are looking forward to a rent free future and a relaxing retirement.

I am not in the best of health with Crohn’s disease and this proposed regeneration is most stressful and is not helping. Over the last five years we have had new heating installed, new fibreglass roof, new doors, front and back, and a lot more expensive jobs.

I feel so strongly about this and I for one, will not part with my home and they will have to bulldoze my home with me inside!
