I would just add my two-pen'th to this - when we travelled around Eastern 
Australia in 2006 we were just horrified to see how much of it was being put 
under concrete, particularly between the mountains and coast all the way from 
south to north. Seeing all these patches of houses out in the bush was 
extremely depressing, and all needing cars to get to work. .

I know the UK was built all over years ago but we have leant our lesson now and 
you have not been able to build a big new development in the countryside for 
about 50 years unless it's a whole new town or big village with suitable 
infrastructure and green credentials and loads of planning restrictions   And 
generally on old industrial sites or low grade farmland. Certainly not on 
endangered habitat! (This would probably be against EU regulations in any case 
- Poland has just been forced to stop building a new road as it goes through 
important wetland habitat)

I just Australians wake up in time to realise what is happening.
