Hellen Barnaby used to enjoy a view of Perth, Australia from her apartment balcony. Now she sees a wall from a new high-rise that almost touches the balcony.
"I don't own the view and I don't expect to own the view but I am being entombed," she said. "I feel like I am in a concrete coffin." Ms Barnaby and her husband had lived in the building for 26 years and hand delivered a letter of protest against the new development to the South Perth council in 2012, but have since been told the correspondence was lost.
