George Lucas’ decision to build affordable housing on his estate is commendable – the Candy brothers in London should take note

This week, in the wake of wealthy NIMBY neighbours managing to stop plans to expand his studio complex in Marin County, California in 2012, filmmaker George Lucas announced that he now wishes to build 224 affordable homes there. Through his lawyer, Gary Giacomini, the Star Wars creator stated: “We’ve got enough millionaires here. What we need is some houses for regular working people”.

Filmmaker George Lucas is a man who is not afraid to put his money where his mouth is

 

Situated near the Golden Gate Bridge and just north of San Francisco, locals had described Lucasfilm’s previous plans for the 1,039-acre plot as something akin to “an evil empire”. If planning is granted, however, they will now instead find themselves living next to 120 two and three-bedroom homes for low-income families and 104 apartments for pensioners. Whilst Lucas’ proposals for the project – which he will pay for entirely himself – also include a community centre, a pool, an orchard and a “micro-farm”, neighbours argue that he is simply “inciting class warfare”.

 

They are wrong. George Lucas is a man who has made millions making many millions of people happy. He now simply seeks to help hundreds of people less fortunate than himself. Perhaps the Candy brothers in London should take note.

    1. Greed rules in London and it is time for REAL people to be helped to live in Chelsea, Kensington, Mayfair and Knightsbridge. They are fast becoming a ghost time. Established businesses are closing (think R. Soles on the Kings Road, restaurants like Racine and the Brompton Bar & Grill) and there are never any lights on at night. Housing for ordinary folk is being replaced by citadels for the rich (think about what is happening on the Sutton Trust estate in Chelsea Green) and police and fire stations are closing or closed (Basil Street fire station, Chelsea Police Station). Driving out ordinary people and facilities will not be for the long term benefit. The corrupt council encourage this as they’re all on bribes from developers and this needs to be exposed.

    2. The property market in the UK is finished! London is caput but no body is saying anything!? There is coming a massive housing crash in Britain! Never to rise again if ever.
