"there is a great example on locke right now of a developer trying to put a 60 seat bar patio next to a bunch of peoples houses. not cool."

Spare me. It's not a "developer". It's a long-established bar/restaurant owner who wants to expand his business. A business, I might add, which is much beloved in the neighbourhood (I used to live in the area and have many friends who still do).

He's currently being prevented from doing so because of a group of NIMBY people who want the high property value (and convenience, I'm sure!) of being close to highly desirable Locke Street, without having to take on any of the costs of being close to highly desirable commercial areas.

I don't understand, and have never been able to understand, why someone who doesn't want to live with a reasonable amount of traffic and noise from a commercial area, would move next to Locke Street!
