A HYDE Martlett resident has reached the end of her tether with a housing association – after it failed to fix her fallen fence.

Sue Merritt, of Osborne Crescent, Chichester contacted Hyde when her fence fell down in strong winds before Christmas.

“I’m still waiting for a response,” said Ms Merritt.

“I have been phoning them every week. I run the risk of banging my head every time I go in to the front garden.”

She said Hyde Martlett came out at the beginning of January to take photos of the damage.

“According to their website they have 20 days to get it sorted – which would have been yesterday.

“It doesn’t look very nice and I don’t know what else to do.”

Jane Ball, regional director for Hyde said: “I’d like to apologise to Ms Merritt for the delay in attending to her repair and to reassure her that we’re doing everything we can to mend the fence as quickly as possible.

“In addition to the increased amount of repairs activity due to the recent adverse weather conditions, we’ve also experienced some challenges in sourcing materials including appropriate fence panels.

“I’m sorry that Ms Merritt hasn’t been kept fully informed on progress of the works and will make sure that she remains aware of the work being carried out to complete the repair.”
