Gazette column: When we buy a house, we don’t own the views

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about protests against a new housing development in Dursley and how not only do we not own the views from our homes, but sometimes change can actually lead to improvements.

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Should we be able to keep the views from our houses or can we not own everything around us? Is there a development proposal in your area? Let me know.

Gazette column: Thornbury may have a Sunday Times accolade, but it needs to learn to share itself

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about the town of Thornbury and how that, with it’s recent fantastic award by The Sunday Times as being one of the best places to live in the South West, the town needs to learn to share itself  and its good fortune with others.

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Should Thornbury welcome in new people and housing developments? Or should it close its doors and preserve it as it is? Let me know.
