Your Anecdotes - Is Nimbyism Being Defeated Anywhere?

Recommended Posts

Not really. Those with nothing to lose (ie those with a criminal record) get social housing anyway. Those of us who lose most (ie have over £16k of savings don't want a criminal record) are too meek, and those in decision making places are alright jacks.

The biggest chance for crushing the absurd planning system IMO is our mohammedian south asian friends who seem to think most British law is voluntary...they have big families...will probably have a lot of housing demand in coming years...maybe they can make themselves useful for once and actually show our planning system up for the abusive pile of crap it is and just ignore it.

I think the biggest drive of nimbyism is the loss of community and the feeling that everyone is a stranger in their own town. Years ago when communities were stronger, people supported building as they could see that it was helping their friends and family.

The conquer and divide strategy consecutive government have used has fragmented these communities so that everyone is against each other - especially when it comes to building new homes which involves devaluing theirs.
