Sounds as though it could be worth seeking out. Mind goes to a novel I read long ago, Over Our Dead Bodies (I've forgotten the author's name, and attempted Googling delivered only -- presumably more recent -- books of that title but on very different subjects !) The novel in question was a fictionalisation of the story of the impassioned, and successful, resistance by local people to the 1970s proposal for siting a third airport for London, in mid-Buckinghamshire. Said novel -- support for its protagonists' cause notwithstanding -- I found as far as literary craftsmanship was concerned, a rather "hack" and unimpressive effort: thus, not a particularly enjoyable read. Although I love the countryside and hate its despoliation in the interests of perceived progress; occasionally, out of contrariness, I fancy the thought of coming across a novel on such themes, written from the point of view of the "developers" and making the reader, at least temporarily, sympathise with their side of the fight !
