Children in inner-city suburbia: The case of New Farm, Brisbane

Crane, Philip R., Wyeth, Stephanie J., Brough, Mark K., & Spencer, Anna (2006) Children in inner-city suburbia: The case of New Farm, Brisbane. In Creating Child-friendly Cities Conference, October 30, 2006, Sydney. (Unpublished)

Abstract

This case study uses various lenses to explore the question of 'how child friendly is New Farm?' and what can be done to enhance it from this perspective. This case study has highlighted that even in localities of relative advantage children's needs are insufficiently regarded. The pace and nature of inner city urban development requires attention to be given to the social sustainability of these areas and in particular to how these can be positive environments for children of various ages. The inner city is not simply the province of 'empty-nesters'. In a variety of ways children of various ages, their parents and caregivers are utilising inner city areas as either residences or as venues of regional significance.
