    Over the past two decades there has been increasing concern over the rise of neoliberal governance. While some researchers are ultimately concerned with the prevalence or spread of neoliberalism; others are attendant to the uneven and multiple ways in which neoliberal projects are realised. Within this framework, the place of large-scale residential property development in Australia occupies an ambiguous place. Drawing on two cases of large-scale residential property development in NSW (Warnervale Town Centre and ADI-St Marys), this paper situates residential development in relation to planning trajectories in NSW and orients this form towards hybrid forms of neoliberalism. We argue that there has been a recentring of the state in infrastructure and service provision in response to the spatial and temporal specificities in which residential development is enacted.
