The death of nimbyism? Brits now support building in their back yard

Brits suppose home-building in their areas, and think that local house prices are too high, according to new polling released by the Centre for Policy Studies. 47% of people agreed that while some countryside should be protected “some ought to be used for new housing”, reports City A.M.

Planning restrictions on Green Belt land also have the backing of senior ministers and Cabinet ministers, according to reports in the Sunday Telegraph.
