New Out Of Town Developments Halted In Slow Down


There has been a tremendous amount of housing development going on in my part of the country.  From being a very quiet trouble free little back water at the top end of the county, we are now one of a handful of development hot spots that is constantly hailed as an example of forward thinking commuities.  I would agree, if any of us felt we’d had a chance to vote on the decision to build so many hopes in one area.  The building of ribbon developments along the ends of trunk roads and major conurbations seems to have been halted for a little while – maybe the last phases of the earlier new builds took longer to sell than the developers wanted.  There can only be so many buyers in any community.  If they’re all buying new, one wonders how do the owners of older, lived in properties get to sell theirs ?   One does indeed wonder.
