Fury as lorries park up in lane as work on new estate begins


Do you suppose the developers and planners factor in the misery that residents have to endure when a new development gets underway ?

The additional noise levels, the additional traffic, the dirt and dust that finds its way inside your house and the dirt and mud that is spread along the adjacent roads.

Its a fact of life that you have to consider if you move into a house on an incomplete development.

Its a totally alien concept if you happen to be living in an established environment.

Perhaps there should be a form of compensation that is paid to locals whose lives are disrupted for the duration of the development. A sliding scale based on proximity to the centre point of the development with additional payments based on your living on the main access route. This payment would be funded by the CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy) charged on new development land.

Somehow I can’t see that idea catching on anytime soon.
