Gedi Protest songs - destroying rural areas? (62* d) RE: Protest songs - destroying rural areas? 04 Feb 09


Not to worry Becks, according to the developers ""Once it is in place people will forget it's there and it will become the norm," said Mrs Bell."

Somehow I think it will be difficult to miss a 60 acre sized development!

I grew up in Orrel near Wigan. There were roads with houses on them but green fields behind the houses. Over the past 30 years many of those green fields are now housing estates. I have lived in Manchester for the last 30 years and yes there are a lot of developments of apartments - people living on top of one another as Wrd says, but I sure as hell would rather see that than lose more and more of our wonderful countryside.

I know the countryside cannot be preserved in aspic, but I'm with Becks on this one - too big and in the wrong place. A development of this size will totally destroy the nature and 'feel' of a small village and I think this alone should be sufficient reason not to go ahead with it.

I do hope you won't accusing me of nimbyism!
