Intrigued by a group called “London YIMBY” – “yes, in my back yard”, we asked them to write a little about their organisation and what they’re trying to achieve. You can read more on their website. And if you have any thoughts, please comment below.
London YIMBY is a campaign to make homes more affordable and secure across the UK by getting more attractive housing built with the support of local people.
The housing crisis is the biggest cause of inequality and lost opportunities.
Shockingly, it’s also caused more damage to UK GDP than anything since the Black Death of 1348-49. (We explain more on our website: londonyimby.org)
The great news is that there are many ways to get local residents’ support to build more homes and make areas more liveable and more beautiful. It’s all about how you ask the question.
