FOWC with Fandango: Vacillate


I was surprised when I saw this today as I was approaching our block of apartments. It is something you have to do it Switzerland if you plant to build something entirely new. Construct an outline of the proposed building so that everyone can see how high and wide it will be and whether it will disturb the general appearance of the surroundings.

The strange thing about this one was that it first appeared two years ago and remained for half a year whilst the complaints about the size of the planned building were being dealt with. Some parties disagreed with this extension to our estate. Personally I was not so keen on it, because it would mean that the view of the forest on the edge of our estate would be cut by half, and we would only really see the top half of the trees. On the other hand, who am I to complain, we are surrounded by forests and trees.

It seems that all negative remarks have now been discarded dealt with and the planned block is again being shown in its size. Perhaps it might be a little different to the original. I do have a couple of photos of the first attempt, so if I could be bothered I could do a comparison, but I really cannot be bothered. At the age of 74 these things are no longer so important and opinions of the others are vacillating constantly. However, I will keep my eye on this framework to see how it develops and when the build begins. At least I will have something for a photographic study during the next year.

Somehow I think I am becoming too Swiss.

  1. This is interesting. The first I ever notice something new is going up is when they clear an entire lot of trees, and then the property stays vacant until the finally decide to build. The Swiss are so very organized.
