Your Voice: Do you think big houses should be allowed on farmland?

From top left, clockwise:

Ray Lei

It doesn’t matter. The true logic behind it is that the powerful riches are taking charge of the whole housing market. The government has less power. If you mess with those riches, they will not be happy and won’t allow the government to put a hand in their pocket. That’s what we are facing.

No. I think it is not fair. So far I know there’s a huge house where just two people live. And especially right now when property is so expensive and many families need accomodation.

No. Prices will go up, nobody will be using the land and it’s just a waste. It just sits there for years.Honestly, I just hope that they’re using the land... And why build a really big house when you can build a bunch of houses?

Kim Hakkak

No. It should be farmland. Farmers should be able to afford it. When there are bigger houses, it’s really difficult to afford the land because the land value goes up. Now, if they are using the farmland, I see nothing wrong with it. But if they aren’t touching the land, I don’t understand why.

Biker Sandhu

Yes, because we have planned for our retirement to spend with our son and (his in-laws). We’ve owned the (10-acre farm) property for 50 years and planned to build a home to live on. People shouldn’t oppose multi-family homes. I don’t want to see homes used as hotels or short-term rentals.
