We say ‘yes in my backyard’ to good development that makes for better living. As a voice for good development, we aim to bring a positive and balanced voice to the urban policy debate, so often dominated by the negative NIMBY (not in my backyard) narrative.

We recognise development brings positive economic benefits through investment and job creation. However, we believe that good development means more than that to our communities. Good development focuses on quality outcomes and delivers community benefits.

Our mission is to engage the community and decision makers in meaningful dialogue about making cities of the future, where everyone is welcome. Shared cities, where those who live here are able to stay and those who want to live here are welcome.
