What is YIMBY VIC?
YIMBY VIC, or “Yes In My Back Yard Victoria” was founded in 2017 and is part of a growing, global YIMBY network.
We want better development outcomes for Victorian communities, so our message is simple, we say YES. Yes to more housing and community oriented infrastructure; yes to different housing choices; yes to more inclusive design processes and outcomes; yes to more sustainable outcomes; and yes to more connected and smarter infrastructure which supports communities, businesses and services necessary to make our cities and regions thrive.
YIMBY welcomes newcomers into our communities. As housing prices and rents escalate, the nature of employment changes, demand and options for transport and access drastically change and the need for sustainability urgently increases YIMBYs have become a voice for citizens asking “What is my future in this City?”.
We believe there is the potential for a far more engaged, inclusive and responsive development approach. We believe this is essential to achieve good development outcomes. But YIMBY Vic is not yes to anything and everything. Quality is important. YIMBY Vic wants to inspire good development outcomes that feature YIMBY Vic qualities.
