Product description

Book Description

A timely critique of Australia's urban development and planning, and a blueprint for more equitable, multi-centred cities.

Product Description

The way we plan and build cities in Australia needs to change.

Australia’s population is growing: it is projected to increase by 11.8 million between 2017 and 2046 – the equivalent of adding a city the size of Canberra every year for the next thirty years. Most of this growth will occur in the major cities, and already its effects are being felt: inner-city property prices are skyrocketing, and the more affordable middle and outer suburbs lack essential services and infrastructure. The result is inequality: while wealthy inner-city dwellers enjoy access to government-subsidised amenities – public transport, cultural and sporting facilities – new home buyers, pushed further out, pay the lion’s share of costs.

How can we create affordable housing for everyone and still get them to work in the morning? What does sustainable urban development look like?

In this timely critique of our nation’s urban development and planning culture, Peter Seamer argues that vested interests often distort rational thinking about our cities. Looking to the future, he sets out cogent new strategies to resolve congestion, transport and expenditure problems, offering a blueprint for multi-centred Australian cities that are more localised, urban and equitable.
