I just wish our council and hillbilly Binbrook councillor would allow some proper urbanization out there, not just sprawl and cars.
Agree.. I'm in Binbrook once or twice a year to visit inlaw etc and to me it seems like Binbrook is just a place people move to for a big house and a double car garage as they can't afford urban Hamilton or somewhere else.

It never struck me as a library book reading type of place.

How is the 10 storey building proposal coming along.?

I suggested to my wife's family that a development of that scale could be the trigger for transit which was met with glazed eyes and the comment that it would increase their taxes. Needless to say they have 3 cars and spend a lot on gas getting everybody everywhere.
