It is being headed up by Environmental Planning Associate Professor David Connell who argues the locations of the biggest cities in the country can in part be attributed to there close proximity to some of the nation’s best farmlands.

Consequently he suggests as these cities expand some of the countries most fertile land is taken out of production and used for development of shopping malls, condominiums, and golf courses.
