RAF man who lives in Walters Ash fears his family will be left homeless
A RAF serviceman fears he will be left homeless and said the council is doing "little or nothing" to help find him a house for when he leaves the force.
Kevin Taylor, 48, currently lives in personnel family accommodation in Walters Ash but leaves the service in August after 30 years.
Having lived in RAF accommodation he is now faced with finding a home for his family, but he said Wycombe District Council has not been able to help him.
He said he feels other members of society have been placed before him in the list for social housing.
Mr Taylor said: "Because I have supported this country for 30 years of my working life, which are the best 30 years, I feel I am being disadvantaged."
He currently works at RAF Halton but has spent 22 years working and living in Walters Ash. His contract ends in August.
Mr Taylor, who lives with his wife, Alison and two sons, Peter, 22 and Paul, 21, said: "Once the end of my service career has happened I am no longer entitled to reside in service accommodation.
"They will then evict us all and we will then be a homeless family."
They also have a daughter, Kelly, 30, who lives in the area, and three grandchildren.
He said he has been registered for social housing with WDC for more than a year.
Mr Taylor said when he joined the RAF at 18, he did not have the foresight to buy a house.
He now fears he will find it very hard to get a mortgage for a period longer than 15 years.
The rent the family currently pay is below market rate. But they pay council tax and other household bills.
Mr Taylor added: "I feel the council are doing little or nothing to offer us a viable housing option."
Spokesman for WDC Sue Robinson said: "We're currently looking at Mr Taylor's case and as with all requests we receive, we'll be reviewing his request under statutory legislation. Until we have investigated his request fully, it's not appropriate to comment on this individual case."
A statement from RAF Halton said service personnel attend a resettlement briefing at their station, which is mandatory and covers many topics.
Personnel are then invited to attend a three-day career transition workshop which covers, amongst other things, housing, finance, and grants available.
