"Are we losing control of metropolitan strategies?"

Metropolitan plans come and go, but they are always important policy documents, which constantly influence the course of urban development. Sydney’s modern planning era is generally taken to begin with The Planning Scheme for the County of Cumberland NSW, presented to J.J. Cahill MLA in July 1948, and Bob Meyer’s Briefing on the history of metropolitan planning attracted an unusually large attendance in 2005.



Peter Cumming is one of Australia’s most widely experienced city and regional planners, having acted in the ’80s and ’90s as Director or Chief Planner for the Tamar Regional Authority, the Latrobe Regional Commission and the City of Wollongong. He was Brisbane’s City Planner from 1996 to 2004 and more recently has worked on "Melbourne 2030" and overseas projects in Dubai, Riyadh, Mumbai and South Cebu.
