Abstract

Urban renewal is increasingly identified within Australian metropolitan planning strategies as central in accommodating housing growth. However, there is little understanding of those developers who are responsible for providing new dwellings in middle- and outer-ring urban locations. Using Sydney as an example, this article explores the types of developers operating in these locations, the types of developments they are developing and their tendency to interact with local councils in an effort to gain development approval. In reviewing the operation of developers undertaking urban renewal, it is apparent that informal associations are critical in facilitating development in middle- and outer-ring urban locations.
