Sustainable Urban Planning: Tipping the Balance

File Size: 2.32 Mb

The within-nation planning practices critically appraised in this book are grounded in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and also Britain, societies differing one from another, yet tethered to each other linguistically, culturally, urbanistically, and through their openly democratic styles of government.

A social conscience and a conservation ethic exists in every community. Concerns for the consequences of environmentally damaging and resource-depleting actions sit uneasily alongside individual desires to also achieve material prosperity. One consequence is that these Anglo-heritage nations have not proactively pursued the Agenda 21 protocol (1992 Rio: UN Conference on Environment and Development). The major difficulty is that government and commerce regard profit gearing as a religiosity, binding politicians from both the ‘left’ and ‘right’ of centre into a growth-on-growth mantra. It is little wonder that most politicians, and some planning operatives, put their conservativism before conservation, property exclusion ahead of community preference, and allow resource plunder in denial of future generations. Much growth is substantially ‘good’, yet for settler societies it has not been ‘good enough’ in terms of overall socio-environmental outcomes.
