Why is this house still standing empty?

Basildon Recorder: The empty house in Gardiners Close The empty house in Gardiners Close

NEIGHBOURS want to know why a family home has sat boarded up for two years when nearly 5,000 people are on Basildon Council’s housing waiting list.

Those living near the sizeable detached house in Gardiners Close, Basildon, have accused the authorities of allowing the “perfectly decent family home” to go to waste while homeless families struggle in hostels.

They also claim the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency has gone back on a promise to rent out the property after forcing the owner to sell up nearly two years ago.

They accused Basildon Council – which currently has about 4,895 people on its housing waiting list – of doing nothing to ensure the house is occupied.

The agency bought up the house from its owner as it needed the land for a major business park and homes development, which has since been shelved due to the economic climate.

Pauline Missing, 56, is one neighbour who has refused to sell up unless she is offered a better deal.

She said: “The Homes and Communities Agency promised this house would not just sit empty, it still is.

“It is a sizeable house that could be someone’s home, but it is just boarded up. Some of the windows have been smashed, and it completely brings down the area.”

Mrs Missing said the house should go to those in need, including a soldier she read about in the Echo who, despite having six children, has had to move into a hostel as no suitable homes for his family are available.

Mrs Missing also wants clarity about the proposed plans, and says their lives have been blighted with the threat of the business park development for the past 20 years.

She said: “We are still living in limbo and have no idea what will eventually happen.

“We have asked the council to help, but they can’t tell us anything and have been unable to get anything sorted about the empty house.”

A spokeswoman for the agency said: “Discussions are ongoing with Basildon Council regarding lease arrangements for the property in question.

“It has been secured with metal sheeting and is alarmed – this triggers a security inspection should it be set off.

“Regular inspections also take place and the estate manager has an established relationship with residents who he describes as ‘responsive’ and who know to get in touch to report any issues which are promptly dealt with.”

A council spokesman added: “This is a matter for the Homes and Communities Agency, and they are dealing with it.”

So, neighbours would rather the house be occupied by a DSS family? They need to be careful what they wish for. I have a great deal of experience of living next door to DSS households and it is not something I would wish on my worst enemy.

five not six, but she's right this would, with some work, make an ideal home for Robert and his family.

Pauline Missing said “It is a sizeable house that could be someone’s home, but it is just boarded up."
Absolutely a valid comment, but is flipped by:
" Some of the windows have been smashed, and it completely brings down the area.”
So is she more concerned about the area, or the empty house?

The article starts about an empty boarded up house, but, the area is marked for redevelopment (with compulsory purchases?) So even though the plans are shelved, the permissions I expect are still valid, and therefore have to be changed back to residential before moving anyone back in. Also, why move people in if in, say, 2 months you have to evict them?

Another house on the same side of the Close but located between the Ford Social Club and the junction with Gardiners Lane was emptied, boarded up and within weeks razed to the ground.

It seems peculiar to me that this property is still more or less intact and left standing.


As someone who walks/cycles along Gardiners Close on a reguar basis I've often wondered about the fate of what on the outside looks like a perfectly servicable (apart from one or two vandalisdwindows) property.

Though i agree with what you are saying i just wanted to point out that i myself have my rent paid by DSS, i cant work because of health reasons, and although a lot of people who are on benefits may well be trouble makers for instance my neighbour is a drugged up waster, we are not all scum i never cause any neighbours any problems and i wish i could afford to live elsewhere. just asking that people don't always go with the stereotype.

Just becasue it looks serviceable doesn't mean that it is. Often, there will be a minimum level of repair, perhaps including dampworks, new boiler, redocoration etc.

If the place is going to be flattened soon, is that a wise use of the Local Authorities money?

I'd also suggest that plenty of people living in mortgaged or privately rented houses are capable of being equally awful neighbours. It's quite ignorant to generalise.

(And no, I'm not on any form of benefits.)

Why don't the spondgers go and get a job like normal people have to, to support their families instead of waiting for working peoples money to come in so the government can build more council houses.

I agree that not all DSS tenants are trouble makers. But, in my experience, all of the worst trouble makers have been DSS. I've had them all living next door to me - drug users, drug dealers, child abusers, fare dodgers, thieves, fraudsters - and every single one of them were DSS. So, if I had the choice of living next door to an empty house or DSS tenants, I know exactly what I would choose (and my choice would be based entirely on my personal experiences, rather than any stereotype).

Just back from a short break in Hastings. The site we stayed on was a wreck. Higgledy piggledy "improvements" such as verandas stretched the full 30 yards of the pitches, the timber of those same verandas left untreated and rotting. badly laid out vans with no thought of fire safety regarding distance between. Disgustingly filthy windows and outside metalwork which seemed to have never been cleaned, and me spending half my "break" trying to make it look a little more habitable, so yes, I have lots against caravans, or at least, the folk who let them!

Why do you ask?

I never said anything about the vans. It was the idea of demolishing a brick-built structure to allow replacement by a non permanent one. That is, of course, if this is the proposed area of siting caravans!

Do you have something against caravans?
Just back from a short break in Hastings. The site we stayed on was a wreck. Higgledy piggledy "improvements" such as verandas stretched the full 30 yards of the pitches, the timber of those same verandas left untreated and rotting. badly laid out vans with no thought of fire safety regarding distance between.

He has nearly copied the name to try stir up racial abuse against Travellers by pretending to be one.
