Health, school and transport infrastructure facilities are already stretched to near breaking point. Wherever large developments are proposed, these facilities must be augmented to bring them up to modern standards eg larger GP surgeries which can take some of the load from hospitals; schools built locally so that children don't have to travel long distances. There is no mention of whether utilities - electricity, gas, water, drainage, broadband etc. can cope with the increased loads required by the proposed new developments.
