9 Year Old Nimby

Recommended Posts

Poor kid - no doubt put up to it by her nimby parents, and as someone said above, ultimately helping to shaft herself and her generation for the sake of a dog shit covered patch of grass with a bench on it.

Does nobody see any merit in the idea that a bit of shared play space for kids is a good idea? Is that development really the best solution?

Yes there is of course, but one suspects its really a big enormous boomer dog toilet.

It would have been helpful if the council had added a rider to things by explaining where the accommodation is now going to be built and who is going to occupy the new properties. If no extra accommodation is going to be built they could clarify how many extra people are going to have to live in the existing accommodation.

It's all presented as if with the planning proposal being rejected then the problem has gone away.

Really? All boomers? And they put swings and stuff up there for their kids to play on?

And if 'one suspects', is that enough for all the statements of utter certainty of wrong-doing on this thread?

These are people too, trying to make their way in life. People on here seem to be desperate to treat anyone who isn't in their position as enemies. It's not likely to lead to anything constructive.

Good for her! Children need places to play. Stop 300,000 people coming into the country and we wont need the country to be concreted over with evermore 'affordable' houses at 300k+ which will only be bought up by BTL slumlords, who will then charge people extortionate rents, subsided by even more housing benefit. Don't vote LIBLABCON...

:lol:

My thoughts exactly. Maybe you're right, maybe they could put other houses elsewhere, but this kind of nimbyism just sets back development.

I think it looks like a nice play area, somewhere in sight of the house to run around, take the dog for a walk, have a BBQ, game of football, a picnic, ride a bicycle, or just lay around and get drunk with your mates. I imagine there are more suitable areas - brownfield, or just unused green fields, to build 20 houses.

One of the reasons why this play area was chosen, will be because some foaming mouthed NIMBY's will have opposed a more suitable plot. The Council probably suggested it out of frustration...or spite.

Here in Huddersfield 'local residents' are up in arms about 20 odd new homes in Dalton. Now quite frankly a direct meteorite strike would improve Dalton, but 20 odd new homes would result in a 'Mini Manhattan' apparently. I bloody wish.

I bet you're right. This kind of behaviour simply prevents development ANYWHERE

Any jobs there too? What job could the average office worker do?

The demand for houses is where houses are already.

You still need to live somewhere regardless of having a job. The trouble is nobody wants any houses built near them.

Apart from London most if not all the city`s in the uk are surrounded by the green belt with in 25 miles ,is that to far for people to travel to work ?

As already mentioned not being able to build on the sacred green belt is the reason councils are building on recreational land within our towns and cites and this is the reason for postage stamp size plots

This is why I supported the new eco-town proposals under Labour. Some of the designs were a bit dodgy but quite frankly it was looking like the only way to get some rapid building going. We are so in need of decent housing it's become a case of 'if you build it, they will come.' Now most of those plans are dead in the water too. It seems people gleefully want future generations to live in hutches or underground.
