Topic: Guest speaker: Professor Michael Buxton from RMIT — The 20 minute city – is this for real?
RMIT’s Professor Michael Buxton has been a critic of the deregulatory trends in land use planning at both state and Commonwealth levels in recent decades. The Baillieu government introduced the concept of the 20 minute city in its discussion paper “Melbourne, let’s talk about the future,” released in October 2012 to guide public discussion on the development of a new metropolitan planning strategy for Melbourne.
What does the 20 minute city mean? Is it feasible? What planning tools should be applied to enhance mobility in Melbourne in a way that meets economic, planning and environmental objectives?
