A MOBILE home park resident has blasted the site’s owners after a fallen tree left her without water for more than a week.

The resident, aged 73, who asked to remain anonymous and lives at the Crayshill Mobile Home Park, off London Road, Crays Hill, said she’s been forced to move in with her daughter.

She said: “The tree feel onto my neighbour’s home on Saturday, August 10, and it broke the mains pipe for the water.

“I still have no water and the site owners are not helping at all.

“I’ve had to move into my daughter’s home because I still have no running water, but I can’t stay with her forever.

“I’ve lived here for about 15 years and it is so frustrating for me that nothing is being done about it.

“I have contacted Basildon Council about this as they gave the land owners the licence to run the park.

“I think the council should be getting involved but it feels like nobody is taking responsibility for what is happening here.

“The other two homes that were affected have their water back on, but I still don’t.”

The angry resident said she shouldn’t have to put up with this and pays her rates but isn’t getting a full service.

She said she’s warned the park owners about the dangerous trees, but nothing was done.

She said: “I am paying about £157 a month for the water and hard-standing but I am not getting any water.

“The whole thing is causing me so much stress, I cannot explain how much it’s all affecting me.

“It just isn’t good enough what is going on here.

“I’ve been told by my neighbour that they cannot turn the water back on until they’ve got rid of the tree stump.

“But what I want to know is how long is it going to take.

“I just want to get back into my home, but I can’t.”

Park bosses say they are doing all they can to resolve the issue.

A park spokesman said: “It was an act of mother nature.

“The tree was not on our perimeter but we took matters into our hands as the safety of our residents is very important to us.

“Obviously it was a hazard so we had it removed and there were other trees that were a danger so we’ve had them removed too.

“Until we remove the tree stump we cannot fix the water, but we are on top of this and trying to get this done as soon as possible.”

Basildon Council was contacted for comment.
