Homeowners have upped the ante in their fight with a management company over maintenance charges at Dalkeith’s Wester Cowden area.

As recently reported in the Advertiser, the residents are at war with Scottish Woodlands after the firm billed around 850 homes with an annual charge of £172.80 for landscaping and ground maintenance.

Locals already pay maintenance charges to various factors on the estate, and feel that they are being hit with a double-whammy.

The wrangle saw around 200 people attend a public meeting at Dalkeith Rugby Club on November 24.
