A DISABLED tenant has hit out at housing chiefs for being made to wait for essential home improvements.
Philip Hood, 56, of Lime Grove, Golcar, says the Decent Homes programme - which is working to improve more than 500 properties in the area - has failed to do the work.
It is due to provide a new bathroom, kitchen and central heating after surveying his property last April.
Mr Hood said he was also concerned when he was told the allocated funds had run out.
His home is due to be rep- aired by Decent Homes, but he feels frustrated that it has not been dealt with more quickly.
Mr Hood said: "The fact that surveyors condemned parts of house suggests that they are not up to a decent standard and it's just not right that I am expected to live in these appalling conditions.
"My heating system is particularly dangerous, because the dust that it blows out effects my asthma.
"I want Decent Homes to stop messing us about and give a date for when the improvements will be made."
A Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing Decent Homes spokesperson said: "Mr Hood spoke with one of our surveyors only this week and was assured that the money had not run out and that the improvements to his home will be carried out.
"Staff are currently talking to tenants on the estate about their options as well as discussing any concerns they have.
"Mr Hood will soon be making his choices and the site team will be able to talk more about the work that will be carried out in his home at that time."
