Created by a a dedicated team at the Prince’s Foundation, the BIMBY Housing Toolkit is a simple, practical online tool for community groups to use. It helps communities to engage with the planning process and to work positively with planners and developers to create what they see as ‘Beauty In My Back Yard’ (BIMBY).

Community groups work through the steps in the BIMBY Toolkit. The end result is a BIMBY Housing Manual. This is comprehensive and professional report which details their communal vision for good quality local housing. It will help engage developers and planners as all work towards meeting current housing targets.

ELF is particularly pleased to support this initiative as it promotes a key aim of our work, which is to promote “the collective, good decision-making which is at the very heart of democratic and stable societies”.
