    Hi ID.
    You have missed something planners must look at.
    1. Vegetation removal. Environmental effects.
    2. Existing infrastructure to accommodate the increase.
    3. The Road network.
    4. Locations of Hospitals, Schools and Sporting facilities.
    5. Current Capital improvement Value of properties and the medium rate notice value for the Shire.

    Hope this is a help.

      Thanks for your comment Graham. As experts in demography, economics and population, some of the things you’ve raised aren’t really our niche (eg. environmental effects). We agree they are important considerations of a housing strategy – just we’re not the people to provide the evidence base.
