Judge Rules Residents Get More Time to Move Out

BRUNSWICK COUNTY -- Some Winnabow residents will have more time to figure out their next move.

A judge denied a developer's request Wednesday to force residents of the Circle D Mobile Home Park to leave their homes immediately.

Five Points Developments bought the property back in December and thought the residents were notified at that time. Residents say they didn't know about the sale until June. The law requires 180 days notice.

The developers gave the residents until mid-August to move, but the residents say that was short of the 180 day minimum and they should be compensated.

"I feel like the developer, since this was all done behind our backs, the developer should pay everybody whether they have moved out of their trailer or not," says Jean Wiles, a resident of the Circle D Mobile Home Park.

The judge wants both sides back in court in about a month.
