Its world town planning day.
Good town planning is about the right development in the right place. If planning changes of any kind prevent that then any change has to be a ‘developers charter’ by definition.
Good planning is not just about stopping development but enabling it.
A good example is the century of progressive zoning reform in the us designed to prevent zoning without planning enacting explicitly racist regulations designed to keep black people out of white neighbourhoods.
After all one of Trumps major pitches to ‘suburban housewives’ was to rage against zoning reform proposals which would create crime (cipher for black people in suburban (cipher for white) neighbourhoods.
Many of the Advocado straplines are little more coded – just like David Ike using ‘lizard people’ as a cipher for jew.
Consider the words of Eco-Thanos Pentti Linkola the intellectual leader of advocado alt right eco-fascism
What to do, when a ship carrying a hundred passengers suddenly capsizes and only one lifeboat? When the lifeboat is full, those who hate life will try to load it with more people and sink the lot. Those who love and respect life will take the ship’s axe and sever the extra hands that cling to the sides of the boat.

How is that different to typical advocado objections, the roads are full, the schools are full, the surgeries are full, keep them out. After all when comprehensive garden community proposals are proposed to provide the infrastructure come forward the true motivation comes out – keep the city oiks out.
