You make a good point, a little less consumption overall should be the result, so fewer people (or at least a little slower increase), less strain on public services, less strain on housing stock, no need to build the OxMkCam Expressway and the 1m extra houses to go with it, no need to build on the greenbelt, maybe a bit less congestion on the roads/motorways from a few less HGVs. Or do you think it's best all round if we just keep growing for growth's sake?
