The aim of this paper is to extract from the current literature a set of NIMBY syndrome approaches. It gives a positive account of NIMBY and develops a synthetic conceptual framework combining different readings of the NIMBY syndrome and proposes to assess its impacts on community health. The purpose of constructing a conceptual framework is to understand how urban societies deal with tensions caused by land-use or site selection projects, in particular by encouraging citizen participation, negotiating solutions and considering planning practices. The framework should be constructed in a way that permits the NIMBY syndrome effect to be assessed. Using Montreal as an example, a short test is conducted to illustrate the scope of the proposed framework and demonstrate the soundness of the positive account given to land-use planning and environmental disputes.
