Dalyellup home owners who have been left with a barren and sandy front yard for two years say they will take legal action against property developer Ironbridge Pty Ltd.
Leigh Trigwell is waiting for his front yard to be landscaped as part of Ironbridge’s home and land package, two years after he was given the keys to his new home.
“People say, ‘bite the bullet and get it done yourself, ’ but it’s not about that, ” Mr Trigwell said.
“That’s how people get away with not doing what they’ve promised, they assume you’ll just take it on yourself and pay for it.”
Extremely frustrated by the lack of action, Mr Trigwell contacted Collie-Preston MLA Mick Murray.
An Ironbridge employee told Mr Murray a landscaper would be in contact by January 19, but Mr Trigwell has been left waiting.
The employee said 14 homes had just been completed, with another 10 booked to be done, leaving only eight remaining.
Mr Murray, who sat on the committee in last year’s Parliamentary Inquiry into Ironbridge, said he had encouraged Mr Trigwell to contact Consumer Protection.Ironbridge director Ian Wallace told Consumer Protection last April that he anticipated all outstanding landscaping would be completed by June and fence painting would begin in July 2012.
