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.
Nick Keable, UK vice president of the Saint Consulting Group,
said: “Nimbyism is hardening in Britain. Although it is possible we
may have reached the high water mark for general opposition,
those that are against development are becoming more
aggressively active in opposing schemes nationwide.
