We could easily stop all new developments because there is always someone who will be affected. If that were the case Southwark and Lambeth would remain the blighted spot of central London and further feed the "never go south of the river attitude" of north Londoners. The new tower blocks will add to the councils revenue as there will be additional revenue from council tax. No doubt the Liberal/Labour councils will make good use of this revenue to benefit the existing residents of the area.
