Nimby Hall Of Fame

This one is good

http://www.guildfordgreenbeltguardians.co.uk/home/4581459298

Basically one couple campaigning to stop building on green belt. Their address

https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=down+place,+hogs+back,+guildford&hl=en&ll=51.234918,-0.626478&spn=0.027892,0.052314&sll=51.241515,-0.565423&sspn=0.111121,0.209255&hq=down+place,+hogs+back,+guildford&t=h&z=15

Right in the middle of that green belt.

Lots of pictures of hikers strolling across the downs, usual guff about public amenity, but it's actually a very narrow self interest campaign by a millionaire property owner.

There is a young couple there! suppose they don't need to think about finding somewhere to live with a growing family, yet!

Not quite, they just took out a 95% HTB mortgage and don't want their house devalued by people printing more houses.

These I'm alright Jacks NIMBYs are absolutely laughable, I only saw 1 youngish couple in the pics. None of them gave a real practical advice of where we can build much needed homes for our growing population.

Come on gals and guys start a campaigning against NIMBYs and stop whinging about it.

So wheres are the campaigns in support of building on dog toilets, sorry, green belts?

I'd imagine it would be made up of 85% of people in their mid 20's to high 30's.....

Cornish NIMBY's whom most will be emits pricing out the locals.

Liskeard greenbelt campaigners demand meeting with council

“Liskeard Matters came together over 16 months ago to protect Liskeard’s greenbelt on the western edges of town, which is currently threatened with two separate development proposals,” the group said in its open letter.

“These fields, four in total, are vital wildlife habitats, and flood plain for the East Looe River.

“They are also unsuitable for building on because of a steep gradient, inadequate access, serious drainage issues and an existing sewerage system at beyond capacity.

“There is also considerable local opposition to another green space being destroyed when in Liskeard, and other areas in Cornwall, there are suitable alternative sites.”

Yep, seems to be run by this lady.

http://www.allisonlivingstone.co.uk

She used to live in Sydenham (Dulwich) - she was on the electoral roll there in 2006 - and still lists as her interests 'Dulwich Ukulele Club'.

She organised a gay rugby (the mind boggles :ph34r: ) tournament in super-posh Esher, Surrey, in 2004:

Looks like she moved to Liskeard in late 2008.

Now she's trying to tell the people of Cornwall what they want.

I saw one of the commenters on her site is a Barry Vigus. Assuming there's only one Barry Vigus in Liskeard, he's 61:

He appears to have farming interests all over the place.

Hmm, interesting.. Shall keep a note of this.

the conspiracy theorise in me says that many of these NIMBYS we see rallying could well be part of an organised group that move about rather than 'locals' objecting. If so then who is funding this? :ph34r:

Good research

This is where I plan to tell you more about my writing and photography, as well as my communications company, Gingerpop

Intriguing to know who 'Peter Hudson' is too.

Even the blog liskeardmatters.com is run anonymously, with the registrant details hidden using a proxy service, but at least they are honest

I don’t live near this field, why does this effect me?

Because it affects Liskeard. The housing market is sluggish (only six homes sold in the whole of January and February, 2013), and adding dozens of extra unwanted homes will not help that. It will reduce our already modest house values and will make it harder to sell. Again, on its own this is not a reason to not build, but it adds to the overall picture.

Funny you should say, I am contemplating standing at the next local elections as an independent, as pro- building/anti rentier platform. I stand no chance at all of being elected, but if I could get enough 'support' might acquire some media coverage.

The irony being I'm old enough to be a NIMBY! :lol:

In the meantime, thinking of organising my own anti NIMBY demo's when NIMBY's have their protests.

They're relentless aren't they?

Barnet Borough Council officials recommend refusal for Mill Hill mausoleum plans

Campaigners are “reserving their joy” over a setback for plans to build a huge tomb in the middle of the greenbelt.

Barnet Borough Council officers have advised its planning committee to reject proposals for a new mausoleum on land next to Westminster Cemetery, in Milespit Hill, Mill Hill.

More than 1,000 people have signed a petition to block the “astronomical” scheme amid fears it could harm wildlife.

GLA member for Barnet, Andrew Dismore, who has been leading the campaign.

BBC SpringWatch presenter Chris Packham has also spoken out against the plans

Campaigners start petition to protect greenbelt in Mole Valley and Epsom

2964124.jpg?type=articleLandscape

Campaigners have started a petition in a bid to safeguard the greenbelt from potential development.

Conservative campaigner Daniel Race has started the petition that "supports Epsom and Mole Valley to reject any loss of greenbelt". It has attracted 34 signatures online so far.

Mr Race raised concerns about land marketed by Dubai-based real estate agency Kings Land and a consultation on greenbelt sites including Ashtead Park Garden Centre on the border with Epsom.

He said: "If one greenbelt site is converted to residential development, there is nothing to stop a domino effect happening."

In other news, "Plans for Home for dead boomers abandoned"

Actually, I have no problem with this bit of Nimbyism. Seems a pointless development.

It illustrates how hardcore these lot are with their full time whining.

They have mutated now from nimbys to banana's

Nothing

Near

Anyone.

Even mausoleums for themselves.

Be nice to think of these boomers getting abused in their care homes by children of families they helped brake due to them being unable to afford a house, they're stuck up scum and they deserve it.
