What Is Good Development, and Why Don't We Have It?

Can we design new homes that meet the needs of a growing city without more outer-suburban sprawl?

What kinds of residential development should communities be advocating for around Brisbane, and how would best-practice sustainable design differ from what most developers are currently building?

Are for-profit high-rise developments really the answer to the housing affordability crisis?

Perhaps most importantly: WHY aren’t our governments insisting on better development outcomes from the private sector? How are so many developers getting away with such shoddy outcomes?

Come along to a free forum unpacking these questions with

  • Elizabeth Watson-Brown, federal MP for Ryan and Australian Greens spokesperson on Sustainable Cities (and former architect),
  • Michael Berkman, State MP for Maiwar and the Queensland Greens spokesperson on Planning and Development, and
  • Jonathan Sriranganathan, Councillor for the Gabba Ward of Brisbane City Council.

This event is taking place on the unceded lands of the Jagera and Turrbal peoples. Sovereignty was never ceded.

Light afternoon tea refreshments provided.
