Publishers Description: This book is the first comprehensive Australian planning text to be written in over 30 years. It incorporates both theory and current practice, providing an overview of the discipline. It provides a comprehensive view of the major issues and principal activities which occupy planning practitioners today. Further, and most importantly, the conceptual framework of the text is underpinned by the tenets of sustainability and social equity, reflecting the breadth of the authors' planning expertise, theoretical positions and practice experience. The book defines and contextualizes planning in terms of its theoretical, ideological and professional foundations. The history of the discipline, its relationship to broader governance structures and its legislative framework are canvassed. Specific issues central to planning practice today are explored and discussed. Richly illustrated with current case study examples, Planning Australia will have broad appeal for those with an interest in planning - students, community groups, practitioners and the concerned citizen.
