Well well! NIMBYists are apparently to blame for the housing crisis because they object to rezoning which holds up the process and in turn causes property values to soar. Come again?!
At least once a week letters to the SMH lament that zoning codes are being flouted here, there and everywhere. They lament the lack of planning and the high handed attitude of their political representatives.
Why are the residents of Sydney and Melbourne copping the blame when our objections are ignored and our NIMBYism is in effect nothing more than impotent dismay.
