Mayfield House Mayfield House is a large property on the corner of Park Road and Mayfield Drive in the middle of Southfields ward. The property has been derelict for more than 20 years and began to attract local youths and a significant number of complaints about anti-social behaviour to the police. Paul and Ted have been working hard to resolve the problem of the property and have held numerous meetings with council officials, the owners, local developers and, of course, local residents. Eventually, it was agreed that the owners would renovate the rear annexe of the building to produce six pleasant two-bedroom flats which would be rented out to young professionals. The ample parking area in front of the building would mean that there would be no impact on residents’ parking. Once this project was complete, the owners would then start to renovate half of the main house – the half nearest town – again to create flats which could be rented out. Eventually, they would start on the other half of the property which had attracted most of the complaints. “Although this project is a long way from completion”, remarked Ted, “we have finally succeeded in getting something done about one of the biggest eyesores in the ward. Rather than adopting a confrontational approach, we have worked closely with the owners and council officials have been actively involved in monitoring and advising on how this project proceeds. Not only will it result in a number of extra rentable properties in the ward but it will also eliminate a site that was a magnet for ASB”.
