Letter to the Editor – RMA Reforms and screaming Epsomites


Frank Macskasy - letters to the editor - Frankly Speaking

NZ Herald

I suspect that the good people of Epsom, Remuera, Pukranga, Khandallah, Fendalton, and other leafy upper middle class suburbs will soon be screaming blue bloody murder at their ACT and National MPs when developers over-ride local objections and build high-rise monstrosities that are utterly inappropriate for the neighbourhood.

This will be one instance when National/ACT voters get the consequences they voted for, and richly deserve.

Ironically, low-income earners and welfare beneficiaries will probably be least affect (in the short term) by Nick Smith’s  RMA “reforms”.

Keep an ear open. The screaming is about to begin.

    It’s already started, Frank. People in my suburb (Epsom) are grumbling about some development soon to take place. And every one of them voted National/ACT last year. It’s a struggle keeping a straight face when I hear them complaining of what is happening in our street. I so feel like screaming into their faces, “BUT YOU VOTED FOR THIS!! WHAT ARE YOU COMPLAINING ABOUT!!!”
