TRANSPORT, LAND-USE AND THE ENVIRONMENT. CHAPTER 4: HIGHER DENSITY HOUSING AND TRANSPORT IN AUSTRALIAN CITIES

This paper considers the relationships between land use, transport and the environment and describes how Australian cities are trying to move towards higher density housing through urban consolidation so as to achieve better transport and energy efficiencies. As there is no clear leader in determining the pattern of urban development in Australia, schematic models are presented to indicate the wide ranging responsibilities for coordinating land use and transport which make the rhetoric of urban consolidation convincing but its effective implementation questionable. These models are tested using issues on urban consolidaton raised from diferent perspectives: governments, providers and consumers of housing, environmental groups and the research sector.
