  16. 'Disgraceful' response from estate management company

    Hefin David says as well as unadopted roads, there is an issue with the way estate management companies work.

    He quotes a response to a resident from an estate management company for Cwm Calon in his constituency, stating "With respect, get a life".

    He describes that response as "absolutely disgraceful".

  17. Sewers, roads or public open space

    Nick Ramsay cites the website of the Resident Adoption Action Group, which sets out the issues facing residents who live on housing estates where the sewers, roads or public open space have not been adopted.

    The action group states "local councils are often also less than motivated in fulfilling their promise to the residents to adopt a site as they are already receiving 100% of the council tax even though they are not maintaining your highway".
