Re: Re: Developments in Cork
Kite: I really think you have some very serious attitude problems (as the Americans would say) to social housing. Stick the socially disfunctional in ghettoes or leave them on the streets and you really will have a problem. I live in a very up-market area, in a so-called prestige development; that is no safeguard from noisy heighbours, drunks in the street, the odd visit from the polis, not to mention all the petty bourgeois hang-ups (including studiously ignoring all the people you live beside). So-called ‘mixed tenure’ neighbourhoods are the ideal and the current housing ‘crisis’ (i.e. over-supply) in Ireland may offer a part solution. Simples.
MrX and Rumpelstilstkin: You’ve said it better than me.
