Losing views goes with territory

Living on a peninsula means some residents will lose views says reader

A lot of people grow concerned when someone wants to build within their field of view, especially if they’ve paid a premium for it.

But what we keep forgetting – excusable given the local age demographic – is that we live on a peninsula. For anyone who doesn’t understand the meaning of the word, it roughly translates from Latin to “almost an island.”

We are surrounded by water and therefore, someone would always have their view obstructed regardless of where we decide to build.

But as the great Spock said, the needs of the many (Sidneyites), outweigh the needs of the few (upper class waterfront residents).
