Councillor Duffy said: “I have been contacted by numerous residents in the estate, some complaining that their gardens were unusable due to lying water.
“Many of these residents have stated that they moved to their new houses after many months being homeless or living in flats and had really looked forward to having a garden for their children.
“But this soon turned to disappointment when they discovered the issues with the gardens.
“I would like to thank Apex for their positive response to my request and the prompt action they intend to take to get this issue addressed.
“This is a great housing development with beautiful new homes.
“And with the opening of the new Skeoge Community Hub I have no doubt that this will become a great community,” she added.
