They can go as much as £100,000 over the top although £25,000 is more usual.” This is occurring in an area where, says an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) study, 40% of households have an annual income of under £20,000.» —“Clampdown-on-sea” by Marion Welham Times (London, England) Nov. 5, 2006.
