Public attitudes towards new building are becoming increasingly hostile, according to research presented at a housing-sector conference.

Nick Keable, vice-president of UK operations at Saint Consulting, presented the research at the ‘Delivering housing growth: overcoming opposition’ conference on 8 July, which showed increasing ‘nimbyism’ (‘not in my back yard’ attitudes) among Brits over the last three years.

Keable was presenting results of a survey of 1,006 of UK adults in mid-February undertaken by ComRes on behalf of his firm. The South West was statistically the ‘most nimby’, with the North East the least.
