Yes, but developers are here today and gone tomorrow. They are creating greater flood risk and pollution risk in the spaces that they are creating so they should pay for that impact on the environment and people in some way by providing or contributing to local services that manage these risks. E.g. maintain flood management measures/ SUDs or pay for local transport to job locations. These services will need jobs that are enduring and not temporary.

Yes, but the jobs that developers can provide or fund need to also include activity that offsets the environmental and social impacts that their developments will bring.
