Close camps.

I am wondering why Rosewood camp continues as there are now plenty of housing in Blackwater. Why does the council still allow this to happen when people can't rent their properties? This camp was only suppose to be of a temporary nature. Camps offer nothing to a town and were originally meant to house single people. I read the other day that now the council is supporting the Blackwater town centre revamp. Come on lets be real here if more people resided within this community permanently then this would contribute to the project being more successful.I urge MP Johnson to act on this issue as he stated "200 house left vacant" in the Blackwater Herald on June 10th. We need serious action immediately to redress this issue. Belleair
