An interesting article on the damage that high rise living does to the people who have to live in them was published a few years ago and brought to our attention by a remember of the Facebook Group created to campaign against the West Ealing tower proposals. Titled “High-rise living means crime, stress, delinquency – and social breakdown. Instead, we must Create Streets“, it appeared on the “Conservative Home” website originally though the opinions within the article appear to sensibly transcend politics.
In the article is stated ” Streets are provably better. People prefer them. They are less anonymous and easier for families. Crime is lower. People are happier. ” You might think these are self-evident truths but our campaign proves we can’t take common sense for granted when vested interests are involved.
