Critics claim that land use planning unnecessarily restricts development, discouraging investment and threatening the 'great Australian dream' of home ownership.

On the other side of the debate, global concerns about the environmental impacts of urbanisation and associated patterns of consumerism, ranging from biodiversity loss through to climate change, strengthen calls for stronger and more effective land use planning to manage urban growth.

Australian Urban Land Use Planning provides a practical understanding of the mechanisms, tools, and levers that can be used to achieve strategic and proactive urban governance.
