Aside from the debate on whether this level of growth is a good idea, should we really be expecting our major capital cities to continue to expand at the same rate -- or faster -- than the rest of the country? Aren't we already feeling the impact of congestion and other detrimental effects of overcrowding?
On today's BTalk I ask Ralph McLaughlin, a lecturer in Urban and Regional Planning at the School of Natural and Built Environments at the University of South Australia, what's the ideal -- do we want bigger cities, or more cities?
Have a listen to what he has to say and add you comments in the Talkback section at the end of this post.
