[Urban] Regardless of what we think about the Population White Paper, planning has never been more important:

“The sewers were designed for 4m people (double the population they originally catered for). London’s population is now edging towards 8m and the overflow points frequently pump waste into the Thames. In 2012 50m tonnes of overspill roared into the river. Combined with an increased population are changing eating patterns,…(while) people are also using more water.”
