Transport oriented urban transformation

In the last three decades numerous cities around the world have realised the need to address the financial, social and environmental problems manifested with expanding urban areas and established policies to mitigate the effects of growing populations, rural migration, urban sprawl and car dependence. This has been undertaken through informed and deliberate governance strategies to improve and enhance access and mobility, population health and environmental and a response to climate change mitigation and adaptation.

This background paper by David Flannery, Barbara Norman, Hamish Sinclair, and Viv Straw draws on recent academic literature on transformative inner urban development considerations and provides an analysis of best practice via desktop review of comprable case studies of inner urban transformation.

It examines a number of international case studies including New York, Singapore, Portland, Stockholm, Freiburg and Bergen, together with six Australia cites, namely Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and the Gold Coast.
