* A curious instance occurs in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series, in ''Literature/{{Evensong}}''. The CommunityThreateningConstruction threat is to the whole [[CloseKnitCommunity district and its villages]]; and its source is, subversively, governmental, not private-enterprise backed: [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} naïve, Lib Dem]][[note]]but I repeat myself...[[/note]] local councillor [[SupremeChef Teddy Gates]] was snookered into volunteering ''his'' ward, the [[CloseKnitCommunity Woolfonts]], for new social / community housing. ''Un''fortunately, his ward is in an AONB, and every square foot is scheduled at least Grade II*. ''Fortunately,'' the Duke of Taunton (late [[MajorlyAwesome major]], the [[UsefulNotes/BritsWithBattleships Intelligence Corps]]) enlists the British Army and the whole Ministry of Defence in the crafty solution: he gets back some old buildings (derelict since 1945) under the Crichel Down rule, and runs up {{Retraux}} Georgian housing on the site: to move in retired [[spoiler: [[UsefulNotes/NepaliWithNastyKnives Gurkhas]]]] and their families. It's a political winner ''and'' makes the whole community happy. Particularly as the Duke creates a Trust to do the build: one which brings together a bunch of [[RetiredBadass old Sappers, Signallers, and other Forces retirees]] to train FE students and recently demobbed and wounded squaddies who need to learn new trades.

* The 1994 remake of ''Film/MiracleOn34thStreet'' added a subplot that the "good" department store staffed by the main characters was in danger of being bought out and shut down by an evil rival shopping chain, Shopper's Express. This went so far that the film's villain, the owner of the chain, had his minions conduct an elaborate scheme to discredit Kris Kringle in order to stop their new-found success, thus leading to the trial that takes up the last third of the film.

* A variation occurs in WorldOfWarcraft with the Tillers quest line. Farmer Yoon has inherited a small patch of land from his uncle, but the Tillers are a bunch of rich snobs who don't like city slickers. The player has to convince them to sway their votes in Yoon's favor to let him stay, by doing a variety of quest lines involving growing the crops, combating pests and poachers, and flattering the Tiller members via gifts. Succeed, and Yoon (who knows more about farming than they assume) is actually asked to join the Tillers' council, and as a result of this promotion, ''you'' get the farm.

--> '''Pam''': That's what Dad said when the bank man came to take the farm. *''[[DramaticGunCock ch-chk]]''* And look how that turned out.
