Triple bottom line for systems analyses on integrated transport and land use planning in urban renewal

Regional economic restructuring is a critical issue currently faced in the Northern Adelaide region. Urban development that promotes a transport-oriented environment has the potential to be an efficient strategy that can be the catalyst for social and economic renewal. Achieving optimised outcomes is challenging in suburban areas with low population density where dispersed suburban settings and behavioural patterns are reinforced by planning trends based on private vehicle usage. Similar transformational pressures, especially in relation to the land use around transit nodes, are shared across Australian suburban centres that were originally designed with private vehicle travel as the main transport mode. This study applies a Triple Bottom Line assessment tool to critically analyse detailed mixed-use community centre development plans for the Salisbury City Centre (SCC) located within the Adelaide Northern Rail Corridor (ANRC) catchment area. Utilising travel and residential choice behavioural models, the paper analyses current issues facing the SCC and provides suggestions on new developments for community facilities, land use, parking standards, transport and water development. The proposed SCC development attempts to overcome some of the dilemmas associated with the supply of high density housing with adequate car parking, providing greater accessibility to activities and services and sustainable behaviour transformation. This study provides estimates of social, economic and environmental benefits for the region, and provides useful references for place making with transit orient development (TOD) and integrated transport and land use (LUTI) planning standards.
