SOUTH LAKELAND DC NOT NIMBYISH SAYS FINANCE CHAIR

Stan Collins, chair of the finance and general purposes committee of South Lakeland DC, wrote in the Independent letters page (June 6, p22) to defend the council of charges of Nimbyism against the council in proposing the taxing of second homes.

'To accuse South Lakeland DC of Nimbyism is ... wide of the mark - we have gone to great lengths (and expense) to overcome the Nimbys in order to provide affordable housing for local people. As councillors here can tell you the problem is not so much residents' opposing planning permission. It is the people with second homes who are quick to object to affordable housing for locals,' he wrote.
