Nice to see all you enjoying yourselves, all safe behind the gates.

Just another gripe at gated communities, I'm afraid. They're wrong.

But if "they" had rented a private room somewhere and had fun there, would that be wrong too?

What's "wrong" about gated communities? Is it like eating people?

If the Jam Factory gates were not there how much difference would it make to those outside the gates? It is not like the Jam Factory conversion closed off any thing that was previously enjoyed by the general public.

The Jam Factory gates are always open anyway.

Is any building with gates a gated community?

I would say not, although to be honest I wouldn't characterise the Jam Factory and the like as gated communities, as I don't see the difference between them and blocks of flats.

To my mind a gated community is one incorporating streets and houses along with amenities such as shops rather than simply being residential blocks with gates. Wikipedia's definition is along these kind of lines.
