There’s a lot of spin locally, and just about everywhere else, that we need competition in order to have even more choice.
Our planners and developers and development agencies are of one voice. And it’s about the need for choice! More choice! and even more choice!

I have never accepted such simple spin. There are a couple of articles appearing that feed into this debate and question the benefits.
