You could mention the green belt in the UK which is a policy aiming to reduce excessive urban growth.

You could also mention the problem of urban sprawl, which can result in slum housing.

Thank you! I have now found the markscheme for this question and the answer is meant to be based completely on a case study such as the Kibera slum- so the second part of your reply was correct. :) but what i don't understand is how from that question i was meant to think of Kibera! I literally had no clue what to write- i hope for this june's paper it won't be as ambiguous!
