Planning Boomtown and Beyond

The Planning and Transport Research Centre (PATREC) is pleased to announce the release of Planning Boomtown and Beyond, edited by Sharon Biermann, Doina Olaru and Valerià Paül.

This book has been published to communicate the results of PATREC’s collaborative, applied research undertaken in support of policy in the connected spaces of transport and land use planning in WA.  It assembles an inspiring collection of analyses, cases and policy options and shows possibilities for the modern-day Boomtown of Perth, on a trajectory to almost double its size by 2050.  It provides guidance in developing the vision, foresight and preparedness necessary in planning and managing both the positive and negative consequences of boomtown’s across time and space.

The book will be launched at an invitation only event on Monday, 12 June at 5:00pm at the University Club of WA.  It will then be available for purchase from UWA Publishing.
