The Princes Foundation re Nimbys

At present it is …perfectly reasonable for the default setting to be a Nimby until and unless a land owner and their chosen developer are capable of proving to local communities that the quality of any proposed scheme will not be diluted after planning is granted.

Shaun Spiers

“I once heard a developer say ‘people aren’t saying “not in my backyard”, they’re saying “no s*** in my backyard”’.”

David O Leary

“Those with direct experience of modern homes appreciate the build quality, energy efficiency and attractive community environment that house builders are creating all over the country.

Well lets look at the S**t its members are building in everyone’s backyards

  1. Diluted before, during and after planning in my view. LPA’s in the majority simply cannot deliver the ‘planning’ that is required to achieve well integrated schemes. In the main the majority of the larger scale residential development schemes have little local identity or integrity, are of poor architectural design and lack connectivity and amenity. Not to mention the use of cheap and nasty construction materials – plastic porch roof tile and dummy chimneys – really! Our current Government policy insults the intelligence of planning professionals… boost housing system while stripping local Council planning budgets sends a mixed and frustrating message to the construction sector. Ironic when the apparent cornerstone of planning policy is sustainable development – are we meeting the needs of future generations? No – neither in quantity or quality.
