Lack of Green Space is an Urban Myth


Thank you to Jane Pinder and the team at The Courier-Mail for a great piece at the weekend that revealed good development actually leads to increased greenspace rather than destroying it.

Developers are often accused of snatching up every last piece of land to build tiny boxes. However as this article shows, most developers use greenspace to enhance their developments, providing social amenity and a sense of community.

More and more developers are engaging with experts such as David Ulhmann with a green star community accreditation to achieve the maximum benefits from open greenspace in their projects. The YIMBY initiative has said that it is all about celebrating good development and is excited by this change in thinking.
