'This ... [edition] provides an excellent summation of land use and planning principles, policies and laws within Australia ... It primarily examines the statutory frameworks within which planning - particularly land use planning - occurs, placing primary importance on the New South Wales planning system. It also extends this analysis to strategic planning issues and outcomes. Overall, it provides this foundational planning system framework in a clear, detailed and methodical manner, readily accessible for both the legal and non-legal audience. Accordingly, it is particularly beneficial for relevant policymakers and students studying land use planning, as well as administrative decision-makers and lawyers who are new to planning law.' -- Tayanah O'Donnell * Urban Policy and Research *
'The book provides a comprehensive view of the Australian urban land use planning experience. It helps the reader to understand the complexity of the institutions, laws and policies that are involved in shaping land use planning. ... This is a book that can be thoroughly recommended to readers seeking to understand the Australian experience in grappling with land use planning.' -- Frank Stilwell * Journal of International Real Estate and Construction Studies *
