About this item
The Handbook of Australian Urban and Regional Planning includes over 30 contributions from leading authorities in the field. These contributions provide a single source for cutting edge thinking and research across a broad range of the most important topics in Australian planning in the 21st century. The book is divided into four parts exploring:
- Contexts of urban and regional planning in Australia;
- the Australian Planning Academy: past, present and future;
- Planning Policy (Economic; Social; and Environmental aspects)
- Governance, planning systems and decision-making.
Additionally, contributions cover unique topics and discuss questions such as: the Australian planning academy, who is doing it? Where are they doing it? What are they examining?; Planning education: how and to what extent is planning research incorporated into teaching?; And a theoretical assessment of Australian urban planning: how does Australian planning thought compare with North America or Europe?
This book is the most authoritative volume that includes foundational and cutting edge ideas and concepts on the state of urban and regional planning in Australia to date. It is a valuable resource for both advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in Urban Planning, Built Environment, Urban Studies and Public Policy, as well as academics and practitioners across Australia and internationally.
