Residents of Bell Street Lavington have presented council with a petition voicing opposition to a disability training facility to be be built in their street.
In one of the less charming displays of community mindedness seen in recent years, residents of Bell street have opposed the project on the grounds that it “might” adversely effect property values.
Apparently a neighbourhood peppered with intolerant red-necks who wouldn’t know compassion if it head-butted them isn’t a concern for property values.
It’s a text-book example of the NIMBY (not in my back-yard) mentality Albury has sadly become infamous for in recent years.
Sensibly, Albury council disregarded the petition and voted unanimously in support of the project.
