NIMBY (an acronym for the phrase ” Not In My Back Yard ” [1] [2] ), or Nimby , [3] is a pejorative characterization of opposition by residents to a proposal for a new development because it is close to or, in some cases, because the development involves controversial or potentially dangerous technology) often with the connotation that such residents believe that the developments are needed in society but should be further away. The residents are often called Nimbys , and their state of mind is called Nimbyism .

Examples of projects Likely to be Opposed include Any sort of housing development , [4] bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure , skyscrapers , homeless shelters , [5] oil wells , chemical plants , industrial parks , military bases , fracking , [6] wind turbines , desalination plants , landfill sites , incinerators , power plants , quarries , prisons , [7] pubs , adult entertainment clubs , concert parties , firearms dealers , mobile phone masts , electricity pylons , abortion clinics , [8] children’s homes , nursing homes , youth hostels , sports stadiums , shopping malls , retail parks , railways , roads , airports , seaports , nuclear waste repositories , [9] storage for weapons of mass destruction ,[10] Cannabis dispensaries and recreational cannabis shops .

The NIMBY concept can also be applied to people who advocate some proposals (eg, budget cuts, tax increases, layoffs, immigration or energy conservation).

Developments likely to attract local objections include:

  • Infrastructure development, such as new roads and motorway service areas , light rail and metro lines, bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, airports, power plants , retail developments, sales of public assets, electrical transmission lines , wastewater treatment plants , landfills , sewage outfalls and prisons ;
  • The extraction of mineral resources Including ore, aggregates and hydrocarbons from mines , quarries and oil wells or gas wells , respectivement;
  • renewable energy generators, such as wind farms and solar panels ;
  • businesses trading in services perceived as immoral , such as adult video , liquor stores , and medical cannabis dispensaries ;
  • such per capita benefits, such as subsidized housing for the financially disadvantaged , supportive housing for the mental ill , halfway houses for drug addicts and criminals , and homeless shelters for those with no fixed address ;
  • catering services to some stigmatised groups (for example, injecting drug users ), Such As methadone clinics , syringe exchange programs , drug detoxification facilities, supervised injection site ;
  • large-scale developments of all kinds, such as big box stores and housing subdivisions .

The claims of this type, and some of the following.

  • Increased traffic: More jobs, more housing or more stores correlates to increased traffic on local streets and greater demand for parking spots. Industrial facilities such as warehouses, factories, or landfills often increase the volume of truck traffic.
  • Harm to locally owned small businesses : The development of a big box store May Provide too much competition to a locally owned store; similarly, the construction of a new road may make the older road less traveled, leading to a loss of business for property owners. This can lead to excessive relocation costs, or to local businesses.
  • Loss of residential property value: Homes near an undesirable development may be less desirable for potential buyers. The lost revenue from property taxes may, or may not, be offset by an increased revenue from the project.
  • Environmental pollution of land, air, and water: Power plants, factories, chemical facilities, crematoriums , sewage treatment facilities , airports, and similar projects may, or may be claimed to, contaminate the land, air, or water around them. Especially facilities assumed to smell might cause objections.
  • Light pollution : Projects that operate at night, or that include security lighting (such as street lights in a parking lot), may be accused of causing light pollution.
  • Noise pollution : In addition to the noise of traffic, a project may inherently be noisy. This is a common objection to wind power , airports , roads, and many industrial facilities, but also stadiums, festivals , and nightclubs which are particularly noisy at night when locals want to sleep. [11]
  • Visual blight and failure to “blend in” with the surrounding architecture: The proposed project may be particularly large, or cast a shadow over an area due to its height. [12]
  • A community of small-town feel : Proposals that may result in new people moving into the community, such as a plan to build a new home, are often asked to change the community’s character.
  • Strain of public resources and schools: This reason is for the purpose of increasing the number of people living in the community. a group home for people with disabilities, or immigrants.
  • Disproportionate benefit to non-locals: The project appears to benefit remote people, such as investors or in the case of commercial projects like factories or big-box stores. , highways, sewage treatment, or landfills).
  • Increases in crime: This is usually applied to projects that are perceived as attractive or employing low-skilled workers or racial minorities, as often as they are. and drug addicts. Additionally, certain types of projects, such as pubsor medical marijuana dispensaries, may be seen to increase the amount of crime in the area.
  • Risk of year (environmental) disaster , Such As with drilling operations, chemical industry, dams , [13] or nuclear power plants.
  • Historic areas: The affected area is on the National Register of Historic Places , because of its many older properties that are being preserved as such.

Generally, many NIMBY objections are guessed or feared, because objections are more likely to be successful before the construction start. It is often too late to the project after its completion, since new additions are unlikely to be reversed. As hinted by the list, protests can occur for opposite reasons. A new road or shopping center can cause increased traffic and work opportunities for some, and decreased traffic for others, harming local businesses.

People in an area affected by plans and other forms of organization. NIMBYists can hire a lawyer to do formal Appeals , and media contacts to gain public backing for Their box.

Origin and history

The Oxford English Dictionary identifies the acronym’s earliest use in the 1980s in the Christian Science Monitor . [14] [15] The concept behind the term, that of locally organized resistance to unwanted land uses, is likely to have originated earlier. One suggestion is it emerged in the 1950s. [16]

In the 1980s, the British politician Nicholas Ridley , who was Conservative Secretary of State for the Environment . citation needed ] Comedian George Carlin used the term in a comedy skit, implying that people had already heard of it. [17]

The NIMBY acronym has also been used by social scientists since the early 1980s to describe the resistance of communities to the siting of controversial facilities and land use [18]


NIMBY and NIMBYs , NIMBYs , and NIMBYists , refer to a specific case. As such, their use is inherently contentious. The term is usually applied to opponents of a development, implying that they have narrow, selfish, or myopic views. Its use is often pejorative . [19]

Not in My Neighborhood

The term Not in My Neighborhood (or NIMN ) is also frequently used. [20] “NIMN” additionally refers to legislative actions or private agreements made with the object of maintaining racial identity within a particular neighborhood or residential area by forcefully maintaining members of other races from moving into the area. [21] In that regard, “Not in My Neighborhood,” by Antero Pietila, author and journalist, describes the issue of baltimore throughout the 20th century and the systemic, racially based citywide separation it caused. [22]


Opposition to certain developments in the world is characterized by the acronym NIABY (“Not In Anyone’s Backyard”). The building of nuclear power plants , for example, is often subject to NIABY concerns. [23]


NAMBI (“Not Against My Business or Industry”) is used for any other business that expresses the principle of self-injury or that of the business environment. interests only and not for any other business that would be affected by the actions or policies. [23]The term serves as a criticism of the kind of outrage that business expresses when disingenuously portraying its protections for the benefit of all other businesses. Such a labeling would occur, for example, when they would be challenged by activists – they would find themselves challenged where they seek urban development. This term also serves as a rhetorical counter to NIMBY. Seen as an equivalent to NIMBY by those opposing the business or industry in question.


BANANA is an acronym for “Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything” (or “Anyone”). [24] [25] The term is most often used to criticize the ongoing opposition of certain advocacy groups to land development . [26] The apparent opposition of some activists to every instance of proposed development suggests that they seek a complete absence of new growth. The term is commonly used in the context of planning in the United Kingdom . The Sunderland City Council lists the term in their online dictionary of jargon. [27]


PIBBY is an acronym for “In Blacks’ Back Yard.” This principle indicates that the people with social, racial, and economic privileges should be built on their own back yards, and that it should be built . Economically disadvantaged people might not be able to hire a lawyer, but they could not have done it. The environmental justice movement has pointed out Nimbyism leads to environmental racism . Robert D. Bullard, Director of the Environmental Justice Resource Center at Clark Atlanta University, Director of the Environmental Justice Resource Center at Clark Atlanta University. [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35]


SOBBY is an acronym for “Some Other Bugger ‘s Back Yard” and refers to the state of the art which may be desirable. [36]

Points of debate

Although often used in the past, the use of the concept has been criticized. For instance, the term is frequently used to dismiss groups as selfish or ill-informed, yet these same groups may have overlooked. [37]

In favor of development

Frequently supported debate on the development of higher employment, tax revenue, marginal cost of remote development, safety, and environmental benefits. Proponents of development may accuse locals of egotism , elitism , parochialism, drawbridge mentality , racism and anti- diversity , the inevitability of criticism, and misguided or unrealistic claims of prevention of urban sprawl . If people who do not want to be disturbed by the general need of an establishment, But seen from society’s perspective, the other location might be better, since people living there get disturbed instead. [38]

In favor of local sovereignty

Those labeled as NIMBYs may have a variety of motivations and may be unified only because they oppose a particular project. For example, some may oppose any significant change or development, regardless of type, purpose, or origin. Others, if the project is seen as being white Imposed by outsiders, May hold strong principles of self-governance , local sovereignty , local autonomy, and home rule . These people believe that local people should have the final choice, and that any project affecting the local people should clearly benefit themselves, rather than corporations with remote investors or central governments. [39]Still others may object to a particular project because of its nature, eg, opposing a nuclear power plant, but accepting a local waste management facility as a municipal necessity.



Nova Scotia

In July 2012, Residents of Kings County, based on a bylaw, developed over three years of consultation and hearings, allowing wind generators to be constructed nearby. [40] A similar theme arose in September 2009, where residents reside in a wind generator in Digby Neck, Nova Scotia. [41] In January 2011, residents of Lawrencetown, NS openly opposed to a cell tower being built. [42] A proposed development of downtown Dartmouth in August 2012 was also contested by residents. [43]In February 2013, some residents of Lunenburg County were said to be in the area, saying, “It’s health and it’s property devaluation” and “This is an industrial facility in the middle of rural Nova Scotia.” ” [44]
