Planning Boomtown and Beyond Book

Planning Boomtown and Beyond

A collaborative effort of PATREC’s academic, policy and consulting associates, 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 is available from UWA Publishing. Contact PATREC on 6488 8029 or patrec@uwa.edu.au for further enquiries. Listed below are the individual book chapters.
