Thread Name: Dad ordered to pull down treehouse
Subject: RE: Dad ordered to pull down treehouse
There was green hillside I used to look at, over a whole sector of horizon between two groups of trees, when we built this house eight years ago.Now that view is totally obscured by a wide expanse of giant white sheds, distribution centres for our transport based economies. All, of course, with planning permission. The buildings are not only vast, they are hideous. And, to my way of thinking, they are not economically necessary: far from it, their economic and environmental effect on the country(and world) are disastrous. So don't expect any sympathy for me for those hard-pressed planners, doing their thankless task of preventing the world from being over-runby the terrifying spread of treehouses.
