BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Residents of the Waterford community of Leland have raised concerns about a new three-story apartment complex planned next to their community.

Leland town leaders met with residents of Waterford on Friday afternoon to discuss their concerns and answer any questions people may have.

One of the main concerns — traffic. Residents say they wait between ten and thirty minutes at the intersection of Olde Waterford Way and Poole Road and that adding even more residents to the area with a new apartment complex will not solve the problem .

“We have terrible traffic now. It takes me 10 minutes to get from my house to the 17th, so traffic is a really big problem,” Jeannie Johnson said.

The proposed complex is located in the town of Belville, which does not require a traffic impact analysis for new developments; however, Leland does. The developer had an analysis done anyway, but now the city of Leland is hoping to get a glimpse of that report so they can review it themselves.

Johnson has lived in Waterford for almost 10 years now and she fears the value of her property will go down.

“Actually, I’m considering selling. I just, you know, I’m scared that our property values ​​will go down and I can’t afford that to happen, so the houses are selling at great prices, so you have to ask yourself ‘is- Does it make sense to leave now before all this madness begins? »

Another concern is confidentiality. Drawings of the development show that there are only about 27 feet between the new apartments and the property line of Waterford ward residents.

The biggest problem is that the apartment complex is in Belville, where the city rules are different than Leland.

City leaders have acknowledged that the apartment complex is going to have an impact on Leland, particularly traffic, but unfortunately there is not much that can be done to change anything about the plans for the complex. of apartments.

A resident at the meeting questioned town leaders about sewage and said he would ensure sewage from the apartment did not enter their ponds in Waterford.

Housing growth continues in the region https://welcometopoole.co.uk/housing-growth-continues-in-the-region/ Wed, 12 Jan 2022 06:00:00 +0000 https://welcometopoole.co.uk/housing-growth-continues-in-the-region/
Housing prices increased by up to 12% in the region in 2021

House prices have risen by up to 12% in 2021, although they are expected to moderate to around 3% in 2022, according to Michael Williams, a partner at Morris, Marshall and Poole with Aberystwyth-based Norman Lloyd.

‘We have seen record sales in Powys, Ceredigion, Shropshire and Gwynedd over the past year amid significant property price growth across the region,’ he said. “We expect moderate growth at around 3% in 2022, even with the Bank of England’s base rate increase to 0.25% in December.

“Demand from home buyers in the area has outstripped the supply of housing. However, after Christmas and the New Year, we have seen a gradual increase in the number of owners wishing to put their properties on the market.

“It’s been an encouraging start to the year. Many buyers are looking for larger properties, mainly because they are spending more time at home for work and leisure after the pandemic.

He added: “Our advice to anyone thinking of selling their home is to get an appraisal from their estate agent and put it on the market. Prices have gone up and the demand is there. Combine that with anticipated inflation and base rate hikes and now is the time to consider a move, either buying or selling.

According to the Guild of Property Professionals, of which Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd are members, around 1.3 million residential property transactions will take place in the UK in 2022/2023, eight per cent above the long-term average. term. .

This compares to a private housing stock turnover of around 3.5% in Powys and Ceredigion in 2021 and 4% to 4.49% in Shropshire over the same period.

The average rate of price change in Powys was 12%, with an average house price of £216,998 compared to Shropshire which saw a 16.9% increase and an average house price of £255,156. This equates to an average house price increase of between £21,600 and £22,700.

Demand for homes in towns ranging from Newtown and Welshpool to Aberystwyth and Machynlleth, Llanidloes and Rhayader and Oswestry continues to rise.

“Further changes are unlikely to be made to land transaction tax in Wales or stamp duty tax in England. And so those who have delayed selling their home should consider their options. now before the base rate increases,” Williams added.

Alabama state legislature opens session with record budget, warning https://welcometopoole.co.uk/alabama-state-legislature-opens-session-with-record-budget-warning/ Tue, 11 Jan 2022 19:26:23 +0000 https://welcometopoole.co.uk/alabama-state-legislature-opens-session-with-record-budget-warning/

Alabama could enter 2023 with the largest budgets in state history. But the message from two of Alabama’s financial officials on Tuesday was caution.

In budget presentations ahead of the start of the 2022 legislative session on Tuesday, Kirk Fulford, deputy director of the Legislative Services Agency’s tax division and state finance director Bill Poole, said the reported record revenues over the past year were fueled by federal coronavirus aid. With the disappearance of this funding, the men warned that the money could slow down.

“We’re seeing a lot of key indicators that I think are unsustainable, whether it’s the growth in the personal income rate … out of whack,” Poole said at a joint meeting of the budget committees of the legislature. “All of these indicators are clearly unusual and unsustainable circumstances.”
