The British public’s attitudes against development have hardened
in the midst of the economic climate, according to a new survey
from Saint Consulting.

The Saint Index, which surveyed 1,000 people in January and
February this year, found that 85% of respondents were antidevelopment.

aggressively active in opposing schemes nationwide.
