Abstract

Both South East Queensland and metropolitan Perth region have urban management strategies in place that promote transit oriented development (TOD).The key objective of this paper is to conduct an exploratory comparative assessment of TOD planning policies and implementation mechanisms in two metropolitan regions. The paper also examines the existing governance mechanisms for TOD development in two regions, using content analysis of key planning documents and conducting key informant interviews with selected planners and urban designers from two city regions. There is much that can be learned from experiences of TOD initiatives in the two metropolitan regions. West Australian state government has taken a more proactive role in implementing TOD projects through LandCorp and area redevelopment authorities that facilitate public-private partnerships and land assembly. South East Queensland, on the other hand, has focussed more on the statutory policy instruments such as the Regional Plan and local growth management strategies, with a greater reliance on market forces for the realisation of TOD projects.
