Residents of Holt's Field, Swansea, are hoping that Swansea City Council will save their chalets from demolition by issuing a compulsory purchase order, The Guardian reports (p8).

The chalets, which have been described by Perspectives on Architecture magazine as 'the perfect example of community architecture in action', are owned by the residents, but the site is owned by a development company.

The Guardian reports that they have an inadequate mains water supply and have septic tank sewage disposal. Swansea council have declared them unfit for human habitation, and the developer has plans to begin demolition early in September.
