New homes appearing on every patch of green space Sadly with every house there's are evictions some like the foxes thrive in the new urban surroundings but most don't. St one time we'd have many species of birds come into the garden now it's only about 5 different birds

When i first moved to Basildon it was a new town and looking out of the window there was just green now it's just bricks and concrete everywhere and the towns boarders have expanded and swallowed all the surrounding towns and is now in the top ten of the largest towns in the UK. Most of the places i played as a kid   are under concrete now
