I DROVE past the Oakwood Park protesters early last Friday morning.

Whilst I have sympathy for their plight, those people willingly bought houses on a housing estate from a housebuilder without seeing that the planned facilities had begun to be built.

The housebuilder's sole interest is in building houses and selling them at a profit; it benefits the bottom line and pays the dividends that keep the shareholders sweet.

The residents of Oakwood Park have now realised, too late, that there will be no facilities built.

This whole sordid affair simply shows how some people are so gullible that they will believe anything they are sold without seeing it, and highlights the evil in selling off prime land for out-of-town housing.

A community does indeed need more than houses, but you cannot put a collection of buildings in a field and call it a community; facilities or not.
