BANANA is an acronym for Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything (or Anyone). The term is most often used to criticize the ongoing opposition of certain Advocacy groups to land development.

The apparent opposition of some activists to every instance of proposed development suggests that they seek a complete absence of new growth. Compare with the acronym NIMBY, Not In My Backyard, which describes development stymied by those who do not want the development near to them (in "their backyard").

The term is commonly used within the context of planning in the United Kingdom. The Sunderland City Council lists the term on their online dictionary of jargon.[1]
