Community has blinkered views; Yousay IN YOUR OPINION...

OH DEAR, the folk of Whitchurch don't want social housing in their back yard ("Residents' fears over social housing plans", May 6).

Still, it's their loss. Social houses are built to a better quality, with larger rooms, built to more eco-friendly codes and all have to meet the Welsh Quality Standard.

Over in Pontcanna a private builder has just put up a number of homes on a social housing estate, and these fit in nicely.

Maybe it's not the social homes being the problem but those wicked people who will be forced to live in Whitchurch, you know the type.

But that cannot be the case for Whitchurch has anti-social behaviour problems, many from homeowners.

Maybe it's that old chestnut - the house prices will fall, "but don't panic dear" house prices have been falling for years, and not a social home in sight. It's a funny old world.

This letter has been written in a serio-comic way so the population of Whitchurch can (a) understand it and (b) see how the rest of Cardiff sees their blinkered views.
