Sustainable Population Australia (SPA) has questioned the claim by the Business Council of Australia (BCA) that ‘two thirds of Australians believe that properly planned and well managed migration is good for Australia’. BCA has asked a loaded question, to get the answer they wanted. Their result is directly contradicted by the more reliable Australia Population Research Institute survey. Here, 70% want net migration at somewhat or much lower levels than the pre-COVID 240,000.
SPA says current mass migration levels (400,000 this year and 315,000 the next) won’t be properly planned and well managed. BCA totally ignores the environmental stress and damage caused by the consequent rapid population growth.
“There is no way infrastructure will be adequately provided, when this year’s influx adds tens of billions of dollars to the unfunded infrastructure backlog,” says Ms Goldie.
“There is no way Australia can provide housing for this mass influx of people as well as deal with the backlog in housing requirements of the existing population.”
“There is no way we can meet the energy needs of another 1.5 million people over the next five years and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 43% by 2030.
“The huge amounts of energy required to house all the extra people, never mind that required to transport, feed and educate them, will offset any shift to renewable energy.
“Without huge infill and high rise development, which nobody welcomes, new housing will inevitably encroach on native vegetation at the very time we need to preserve habitat for other species, not least the koala. Urban expansion has meant koalas are nearly extinct in south-east Queensland and have declined in the Sydney Basin Bioregion by an estimated 22% in the last 20 years.”
Ms Goldie says the government’s “commitment” to building one million new homes over the next five years, which the BCA welcomes, means little more than offering bribes to property developers with no guarantee they will deliver more housing than they would anyway.
“According to a recent report by the National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC), only 57,000 homes a year will be built over the next five years, 40 per cent down on levels experienced in the late 2010s.
“Migrants need homes just as much as existing residents,” says Ms Goldie. “It’s not fair to bring them here if there is nowhere for them to live.”

Australia First says 'End plague-level immigration.'
End Politicians plague-level immigration and resultant overpopulation chaos. Clogged roads, crowded schools/hospitals/public facilities, pollution, waste, eco-system/environmental decline, home invasions, house price-rent madness, homelessness, wages falling, poor living conditions - Aussis now strangers in the street!
Population has increased by 30% in 13 years -
70% being alien immigrants/ foreign
students, and 457 Visa workers.
The Conservation Society holds to 14 Million People as the Sustainable Population for Australia:-
Australia First will:-
I] Introduce a Peoples’ Commission for Population, with paid delegates from community and environmental groups to oversee sustainable population directions for our Native Land and Australian civilisation.
ii] The Commission to be authorised under the Citizenship Act, to direct Legislators for closing down the Lib/Lab/fake Greens destructive Immigration Programme.
iii] The Commission to oversee orderly repatriation of [edited out for legal reasons] immigrant excess, to pursue a population level in accord with the Conservation Society optimum for our Australia.
iv] Repatriation to involve [edited out for legal reasons] , welfare parasites, fake refugees, criminals, drug cartels, 457 visa workers, foreign students, etc.
v] A Public Educative programme to expose the extensive overpopulation effects to our Ancient Continent and its Ecological Order, Australian Heritage, and cause for economic decline to
End all immigration!
