Consequences of building more roads and houses
Hedgehog population is down from over 36 million in 1950s to less than 1 million today. Causes include habitat loss and fragmentation due to development, including housing and roadbuilding. (So, need to preserve the greenbelt and get house prices down by credit controls, LVT and higher interest rates. Not the thoughtless response of just building more houses anywhere.) Cue derision from car lovers and people who think house prices are high because of supply shortage.
