It's a quaint old-fashioned idea, but Governments should be making policies, democratically, for our benefit, on our behalf. Unfortunately, the pro-growth lobby of builders, developers, planners and bankers are holding our governments captive for their own vested interests. We need to return to democracy. Our population growth rate is excessive - driven by immigration. We need to replace political-correctness with some common sense.

If you're interested in food security, you have to deal with population numbers, both in terms of total food demand and housing sprawl (impact on supply). Google the STABLE POPULATION PARTY
