Kelvin Grove Urban Village Pathways Audit Report

Crombie, Robert C. & Delaforce, Wayne H. (2008) Kelvin Grove Urban Village Pathways Audit Report. QUT.


The 2006 ABS census for Kelvin Grove statistical local area (SLA) determined the population as 4,384. Population projections published in 2005 by the developers of the Kelvin Grove Urban Village (KGUV) predicted a growth of 2,000 by 2010, the majority of which would occur within the Urban Village development. With such a high projected rate of population growth (slightly less than 50%), there is concern for capacity-building in the community, particularly the Urban Village with its uniquely-planned mixture of different status groups in a relatively small geographic area. The development has to date accommodated these concerns through programs that are generally entertainment oriented. The Community Hub has been involved with organised low-cost social events that facilitate contact between residents. Limited access to internet services has been provided at the centrally-located office for email and job search functions. The concern as development progresses towards material completion is for sustainable community capacity in what is essentially a new community within a community.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
