Reasons To Agree
More often than not. Be careful with 'community views' as these are often representative of small organised groups rather than the community as a whole.

Reasons for Remain Neutral
This is generally true - but only if the community wants it. And it is not always true. Some developments are actually detrimental to communities in ways other than economically. There are health and environment issues aswell. Other developments can in fact reduce the need to employment within a community where the development is more efficient than an older existing one and requires less staff but produces better and more efficiently and shuts the older business down. There are many complicating factors at play in the issue of development. The only thing that holds true is that 1. Development is important and 2. Development that is not wanted by the community should not proceed. The wishes of the community that will be affected must take precedent.
Yet another dumb Q! the answer is clearly yes and no!
