Migrants to call regional Australia home under Government's new population plan

The policy is meant to reduce overcrowding in the two largest cities of Australia, and simultaneously enhance other regions, said Tuesday the Minister of population in the country Alan Taj, reports the BBC. Critics worry the proposed new visa rules could lead to labour shortages.

Thousands of new migrants could be banned from living in the nation's biggest cities under a radical plan to tackle congestion.

There are now no limits on where individuals can settle after they receive a skilled migrant visa.

Also migrants will offer certain incentives, said Mr. Taj, with the hope that they will stay in less populated areas of the country.These visa restrictions will not apply to migrants who arrive under family reunification or visas that are issued at the request of employers. Migrants will gravitate to opportunities & amenities in cities.

Some regional centres and rural politicians have lobbied for years for more skilled residents to ensure their towns survive.

It's understood Population and Urban Infrastructure Minister Alan Tudge will outline the Morrison Government's soon-to-be-released population policy in Melbourne on Tuesday.

Mr Tudge will say travel in peak times in Sydney takes 65 percent longer than off-peak, and 55 percent, in Melbourne.

The government may introduce visa conditions to limit where some migrants live for up to five years, Tudge said.

Around two in every five Australians live in Sydney and Melbourne alone.

It's not clear if the plan would survive a legal challenge.

"Certainly in Sydney you've got infrastructure being built right across the city".

"I'm not sure its legally viable", the Telegraph quoted him as saying.

Immigration has always been a hot-button issue in Australia but has taken on a new prominence as the country heads towards national elections due before next May.

The 2002 Intergenerational Report had predicted that Australia would grow by 2.5 million over the past 15 years-but the growth was about 5 million, outstripping forecasts by 100 percent.

"Any policy that spreads migration will resonate".

Australia's population grew 3.75 million, almost twice the previous decade, adding a city the size of Canberra every year.

He said there needed to be "controlled population growth" and flagged future announcements on high-speed train lines "early next year".

Sydney and its surrounds need to slash immigration by half to counter worsening congestion in Australia's most populous state, politicians said Wednesday.

"We've had 27 years without a recession".

A new $1 billion pool of federal money, which the government is calling a "congestion-busting fund", will be set up to fix local traffic "hotspots".
