A growing number of Londoners are becoming less likely to object to building projects in their backyards as they are unable to get onto the property ladder, according to a poll. The YouGov survey showed 57% of adults in the capital now say “Yes” to more housing in their local area, with just 26% saying “No” – a change from 53% and 20% respectively in a similar poll in 2014. The “Yes In My Backyard”, or Yimby, attitude is particularly widespread in inner London, where 63% supported more local housing, while for outer London the figure was 54%.
