This book discusses the relative lack of attention to Australian peri-urban regions and relates the Australian experience to international trends and challenges. Australian cities are expanding at an unprecedented rate into peri-urban regions but the commonwealth and state governments have not developed a regional policy to integrate planning for this growth and its impacts. Instead, development is incremental, and policy is reactive and fragmented. This book informs a wide cross section of interest groups about the problems and importance of peri-urban areas, policy approaches, and alternative futures for these regions.
