Is it 'cos the kids who use it are unruly?
Seemingly the angst of the nimbies is driven by their dislike of the colour scheme of the playground, apparently it is too bright!
The result being that the playground has been fenced off, and the kids are not allowed to use it until a "satisfactory" colour scheme is derived.
Developer Redrow Homes, because of the complaints, have erected a metal fence around the site and vowed to re-paint the swings and climbing frames, which are primarily red, green and blue. However, as the Telegraph reports, the area has remained sealed off ever since; Redrow is now seeking planning permission to change the colour scheme and re-locate some of the equipment.
A Cotswold District Council spokesman Bob McNally said:
"Cotswolds District Council has responded to objections that were brought to us by some residents whose homes are near or overlook the play area.As ever in Nanny's Britain the voice of the disgruntled, sad whining individual takes precedence over that of the well adjusted sensible majority!
At the request of several residents, it was agreed collectively that the opening of the play area would be put on hold until their concerns were considered further.
One of the residents' concerns was about the bright colours of the equipment - which are not in line with the approved plan conditions for the play area.
The developer has agreed to address this as soon as the formal planning approval for relocating the equipment is granted."
Kids are given a lot of "stick" by the media, politicians etc these days for hanging round streets looking menacing, and for disrespecting their elders. Given this selfish nonsense, it is hardly surprising that kids have a less than positive attitude to adults and turn into selfish gits hanging round street corners disrespecting adults.
