Planning Boomtown and Beyond
Sharon Biermann, Doina Olaru, Valerià Paül (eds)
Assembling an inspiring collection of analyses, cases and policy options, this is a book that shows possibilities for the modern-day Boomtown of Perth, Western Australia (WA), 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 boomtowns across time and space.
This book has been published under the auspices of the Planning and Transport Research Centre (PATREC) as part of its mandate of knowledge transfer of the results of its collaborative, applied research undertaken in support of policy in the connected spaces of transport and land-use planning in WA.
Conducted primarily by PATREC and its academic, government and consulting associates, this book covers research on Boomtown’s spatial planning context and its natural and physical environment essential to sustain liveability; shaping Boomtown through land-use and transport integration; and perspectives of future travel.
