National cities agenda in perspective: rhetoric or substance

    Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

    Abstract

    It’s where 80 percent of Australians live. It’s about time they had a look in. We have ministers for regional development, we have ministers for primary industries but we do not have ministers responsible for our cities, the cities that generate around 80 percent of the country’s gross domestic product and employ three out of every four Australians and that includes not just inner cities but vast expanses of outer suburban Australia where the vast bulk of our national population lives, outer suburban areas that have their own unique planning challenges.
    Historically the federal government has had a limited engagement with cities, and yet that is where most Australians live, it is where the bulk of our economic growth can be found. We often overlook the fact that liveable cities, efficient productive cities, the environment of cities, are economic assets. Making sure that Australia is a wonderful place to live in, that our cities and indeed our regional centres are wonderful places to live, is an absolutely key priority of every level of government.
