Dialogues in Urban Planning

Towards Sustainable Regions

Edited by Tony Gilmour, Edward J. Blakely and Rafael E. Pizarro

ISBN: 9781920899127

DOI: 10.30722/sup.9781920899127

Publication date: 01 December 2008

In an age when the buzzword is ‘sustainability’, why do we continue to build unsustainable cities and regions? Are there alternatives to car-clogged streets, sterile suburban McMansions and a degraded natural environment?

This book brings planners back to the centre of the debate. It shows that sustainability can no longer just apply to the sub-field of planning called ‘environmental planning’ but has to permeate all aspects: housing, economic development, transport, regional coordination and urban design.

Showcasing cutting-edge research from academics and doctoral research candidates at the University of Sydney, this latest edition of the Dialogues in Urban Planning series is recommended reading for professional planners, students and policy makers. We need to find a way to make our regions sustainable for this generation and for generations to come.
