For years it has been commonly accepted that most people do not support urban densification in their suburb. But, is it really that simple? This presentation showcases some unexpected results from a major survey about what makes communities support or resist urban densification. The results presented by Dr Julian Bolleter, Australian Urban Design Research Centre Co-Director, have major implications for how we approach urban densification in suburban contexts.
This research is led by the Australian Urban Design Research Centre at the University of Western Australia and is supported by the Australian Research Council, The Western Australian Planning Commission, The Department of Planning Lands and Heritage, and Development WA.
