rupert grintthe actor who starred in Ron Weasley in the eight films of ‘Harry Potter‘, is on everyone’s lips after the amount that he and his colleagues charged for the filming of the saga came to light. Daniel Radcliffewho starred as Harry Potter himself, earned more than 110 million dollars, Emma Watson He followed with 85 and Grint with 50.
Now, the 34-year-old actor has wanted to invest that money in a new ecological project which he has called “the green town’. However, it seems that his neighbors do not agree with Grint’s plans to build homes in North Hertsa district of 375 square kilometers in hertfordshireEngland.
The idea of the British consists of building 15 new homes in a mansion of £5.4 million. They would be divided into six apartments within an existing building, five floors of new construction, and four houses for low-income families.
However, residents believe that these new construction plans would compromise the green space made up of forests and large grassy fields where bats, beetles and frogs live: “We have no problem with what they want to do with the buildings that are already on the land, or with new houses in the town, but the goal of the green belt is that nature can recover and have its own space”.
The neighborhood is angry about the environmental repercussions that this plan would have, and that is that the impact could be very negative: “If they continue with the project, they will need to replace as many trees as possible, and their new growth would take more than 20 years”.
They reinforce their argument with the serious emergency situation for him climate change in which the United Kingdom is located, however, the council considers the idea of Grint as a construction “innovative” and a good way to show that you can design respecting the environment and looking for the prosperity of this.
