The suburb of Pyrmont on the shores of Sydney Harbour has been transformed by the processes of urban renewal into a thriving cosmopolitan residential area, an efficient and sophisticated business centre, and a popular recreational and tourist hub. Through my own observation of the Pyrmont area, I have seen how the painstaking urban planning efforts for the area have come to fruition, and a focal point of the Harbour foreshore created as a result of this.
Overpopulation can be defined as “the condition of being populated with excessively large numbers”. In general, overpopulation is detrimental to society and environment. It creates problems such as shortage of housings and public facilities, high rents, and pollution. Therefore, slowing down or regulating the growth of population highly important for preventing the aforesaid problems. In the long run, it is evident that overpopulation will further decrease the quality of people’s lives and drain cities of their resources.
Gold Coast SA4 was 1st as the largest contributor to Queensland’s population growth between June 1991 and June 2013, contributing 17.2%, followed by Sunshine Coast (10.0%) with Brisbane South at 16th Regional Population Growth, Australia, 2014-15 )which focused demand for development in the South East Queensland area. The impact of this growing population is magnified because people are using more resources per person. These population pressures have implications for our economy
However, even though this sounds fantastic everything comes at a cost. Cities were not prepared for such an increase in population in such a short

The world is experiencing a dramatic problem in overcrowding. In this revolutionary world many problems are burning day by day because of the rapidly increases in the population. Every country facing the problem of overpopulation.
In 1991, the National Population Council was formed to inquire about population issues and Australia’s future environment, economy and society. This council found that with considerations
In Australia, the number of population is increasing because of the migration and natural growing problems. In this essay I will recommend one solution to solve the problem. Indeed, Australia government should encourage investor or businessmen to invest more in Western Australia and encourage more immigrant and resident to move into Western Australia. It means government should develop the village area, since Australia is too big, and the developer are most likely to invest or innovate in the city area such as Sydney and Melbourne. Thus, the population growth problems affect some cities such as Sydney and Melbourne to become overcrowded. It is a very important issue because overcrowded can bring out lots of negative issues. In addition, this
population overcrowding in GTA and it may lead to several problems such as traffic jams, housing bubbles
Sydney may be the capital of New South Wales, but that’s not all there is to this city. It’s home to several fabulous suburbs like Kensington where there is much to do and to see. Sydney itself has a population of almost 400,000 people. More than 11,000 of the 400,000 live in Kensington.
"Unlike plagues of the dark ages or contemporary diseases we do not understand, the modern plague of overpopulation is soluble by means we have discovered and with resources we possess. What is lacking is not sufficient knowledge of the solution but universal consciousness of the gravity of the problem and education of the billions who are its victim." This was said by Martin Luther King, Jr on May 5, 1966. If this was said almost 49 years ago by one of the greatest leaders of American history, why hasn’t the issue of overpopulation been solved yet? Simply because we lack the universal consciousness of the serious issues overpopulation bring and the education required on how to prevent it. The world just can’t support every single human being if we continue to ignore the issue. So what would happen globally if the demand for natural resources is greater than the supply? There will be conflicts and wars, environmental degradation and climate change. In addition to having a high demand for natural resources and a low supply, it will also cause a rise in unemployment and raise the cost of living.
Another effect of the population growth is the crowding. Traffic in Sydney is already crowded now, so imagine what would happen with 1.5 million more people. Australia is the most car dependant country in the world. Other than traffic, many things are also going to be filled. Small things such as schools, houses and shopping centres will be full. Would you like it if a few other classmates were added into your class? Also, housing prices are already high and with more competion for a place to live, costs will only increase. Although house prices are rising, incomes for the workers aren’t increasing, leaving us with some economic problems. Although they can’t afford the average price of $1.15 million, they are forced to move further west, where there
To manage an urban growing population, many governments endorse policies of urban consolidation. These guidelines aim to slow external growth by uplifting the development of medium-density and high density housing within current urban areas. By encouraging urban consolidation, governments hope to deliver people with a higher excellence of life in the form of housing that is better suited to the demographics of the population.
A few centuries ago, the earth had a lot less inhabitants than it does today. This progression is attributed to advancements in technology and health care. However, as time passed this explosive growth began to work against us, and is now associated as a destructive force, which is currently plaguing the planet. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the fact that, overpopulation is not the primary cause of our modern day predicaments, but is merely a tributary to the actual source. Environmental, economic, agricultural and political factors are some of the main incipient issues, which have thus been ignored, and have resulted in the myth called overpopulation. The negative repercussions of these aspects will be examined, along with a comprehensive study into future populace.
Population is now being greatly realized as a principle element of regional or local economic development.(此处有reference) Understanding the role that population play in a regional or local area is significant as well as effective to facilitate economic growth and organize economic activities. This report is to collect and illustrate the data in relation to population of Tasmania including but not limited to population pyramid, employment, transportation etc. Afterwards, a population projection for the year 2030 will be given to Tasmania, followed by identification of a series of planning implications and recommendations.
