Developers alarmed at Khan's plans to give estate residents power


As with most things this is yet another example of those without the relevant knowledge being given permission to dictate to those that do. "The fear of experts" expounded by the likes of 'Daily Mail' readers and UKIP must be resisted. There is no harm in listening to opinions and acting on those that are relevant, the harm is in being forced to act on irrelevant uninformed opinions. Residents do know about living there as a place exists, they can't necessarily know the best way of overcoming the problems :-) MAE's approach did work, Khan's are unlikely too as his are the same 'rules' that led to the bad estates, their lack of maintenance and poor renovation in the first place. Party Politics MUST be taken out of a role in housing and architecture. 'politics' (small p) is powerful, 'Politics' (capital P) is dangerous. Actual knowledge is the answer not the problem.
