An Urban Planning Crisis in Australia?

House prices in most capital cities in Australias have doubled, putting them out of reach for young Australian families.

"For all of its talk about security, all of its assurances that life will be relaxed and comfortable, the Government has turned its back on the Australian dream.

...The Government has no policy for urban development or renewal, no plans to address the crisis in housing affordability. There has been no leadership from the commonwealth on these issues so vital to every aspect of the lives of all Australians."
