It is important to note that equity, fairness and exclusion are critical issues facing amenity-rich regions (Bush 2003; Duncan and Duncan 2001; Halfacree and Boyle 1998; Nelson 2001; Spain 1993; Walker and Fortmann 2003). Spain (1993) recognized that population growth in many rural areas is often driven by the proliferation of recreational and retirement homes and commonly leads to privatization and redistribution of what were once public amenities. Long-time residents are often excluded from local amenities as housing costs and taxes rise, shorelines are purchased for homes and traditional access to open space is lost as lands are posted by new landowners (Bush 2003; Spain 1993).

Hedgerows and embankments are essential features of many country landscapes to which the French feel an attachment. Previously farmers would spend long days clearing out ditches and preparing for winter by cutting wood from the hedges, which by the same token were carefully tended. Some of these hedgerows have been ripped out today because they were in the way of farmers looking to work larger plots of land and needing wider lanes. The same is true of assets related to crafts, businesses and religious practices: the upkeep of chapels, mills and other buildings costs individuals and rural councils dearly for benefits which are often slight or even nonexistent.
