Peter Newman writes in The Conversation (18.3.16) about what Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's "30-minute city" aspiration might look like from a practical and planning perspective.
'Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has promoted the benefits of a “30-minute city” in explaining his approach to cities and urban transport. The opposition infrastructure spokesman, Anthony Albanese, notes he talked about this idea at the National Press Club in 2014.
'The reality is that the 30-minute city is hardly a new idea in town planning, but it is good to see political leaders recognising its value and grappling with what it means. It’s likely to bring significant change to how we build our cities.'
