Almost two-thirds of people believe migration to Sydney should be restricted and new arrivals sent to the regions, according to polling by the Sydney Morning Herald. The ReachTel poll, which is mirrored by research in Melbourne also shows that overdevelopment remains a key issue for voters, as the state and federal governments face the pressure of worsening congestion and population growth.
Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi says he feels there needs to be infrastructure reform to accommodate any further mass migration which should be cut by 50 per cent.
The poll results come as the Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, signalled plans to slow the intake of some temporary migrants and to encourage new arrivals to settle regionally.
Mr Morrison, with his Immigration Minister David Coleman and Cities Minister Alan Tudge, are looking at simplifying the visa process to get more migrants to move outside the major cities.
Senator Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News the temporary migrant intake is the key to some of our problems.
