Property rights solution

The free market is good at solving problems. There is now a way to avoid noisy children:
Children of the 1960s will be, for the time being, excluded from Firhall Village, near Nairn, which has been developed exclusively for buyers aged 45 and over.
This is the correct way to deal with lifestyle conflicts, but I fear that it's only a matter of time before some interfering politician objects to ageist discrimination against the under-45s.

(Interesting observation: my spell checker thinks that the name of the development should be "Feral Village". No wonder children have been banned.)
