Letter: The grass is greener on the country side

The city’s issues to fund infrastructure to ease congestion and fix many city problems should be funded by city and suburban people.

The demands of city issues is leaving regions underfunded and regional people treated badly. 

The question should be asked by regional MPs: are city people paying high enough in rates and taxes and are tolls high enough to fund what cities need?

It appears not. The cost of city life should be the cost of people who live there, perhaps a levy on all homes in the city and suburbs should be in place for infrastructure requirements. 

Regions are left behind because city life takes too much of the funding. 

It is time to find ways to spread population and promote the fine lifestyles in regional locations.
