On e of the challenges of effective planning when faced with a 3.3% population increase, is to be able to look at the BIG PICTURE. For example, building housing estates without the integrated infrastructure, causes massive dispalcement. People live in houses, The peole demand utilities transport, work opportunities and roads etc. By creating integrated developments with the necessary housing, employment, roads, local transport, commercial infrasture, education, health and leisure facilities, there will be less demand for road & rail services. Integrated local development does not require the massive cost inputs for roads and transport as developments such as Ellenbrook which was developed as a housing estate with little local employment and thus huge demands for roads & transport infrasructure.
