Mayor Linda Hepner should be ashamed of her comment that a good compromise will provide more options for people who want to live in properties that look like large estate homes but can’t afford to.

The people who live in this area paid for their own privacy. Up until now, council has been turning South Surrey into townhome central, but there should be certain boundaries that should change with the NCP.

Tara Developments should sell the property back to those who fit into the demographic of the area, and leave their future neighbours alone.

By the way, I live in a townhome and would rather be respectful and live where I can afford to.
