A Dereham housing development is still unfinished and littered with building paraphernalia a year after its builder went into administration. The Riverside development near the old garden centre in Swaffham Road on the edge of the town was being built by DGM Properties.
A Dereham housing development is still unfinished and littered with building paraphernalia a year after its builder went into administration.
The Riverside development near the old garden centre in Swaffham Road on the edge of the town was being built by DGM Properties.
It was one of a number of sites left unfinished by the Lincolnshire-based firm when it went into administration in April last year.
Accountants Ernst and Young were appointed administrators and all the staff were made redundant.
But for those living at the site it is still a mess.
Brian Moran, who was the first to move on to the site in august 2007 said: 'The road is very bad.

'It is a mess. There are bollards and things all over the place. When you drive down in to the site there are raised drains on the road.
'We would like to see it finished.'
He said it was much worse in winter when dark nights made it harder to see the drains and that it was a worry with children living on the site.
And said that a company had been at the site to look at what needed to be done.
There are five homes still unsold, but it is not clear if they are completed or not.
A spokesman for Ernst and Young said that the firm was selling the remaining assets of the firm and were appointing agents to complete specific sites in order to sell the homes and pay creditors.
