The Edge Steps Up Housing Plans

U2 rocker THE EDGE is defending his proposal to build a number of new houses in his Malibu, California neighbourhood - insisting other residents are slowly starting to back the plans.
The guitarist, real name David Evans, wants to erect a range of private homes in the exclusive beachfront community where he lives.
Residents have hit out at the proposals, claiming the 1,000-acre development would destroy a popular archery club and have a disastrous effect on wildlife.
And now Evans is set to put his case before the California Coastal Commission in June (10) to argue for the development.
He says, "I believe most of the local opposition is softening as I communicate my intentions of how these homes will collectively compliment the landscape. There is a small group of locals who are very vocal and simply want to stop all development of any kind."
