Australian cities, especially the four big ones, are growing rapidly. Their growth enables many agglomeration benefits and creates many social and environmental impacts. This report examines new approaches to resolving how we can grow to create new opportunities for our children and grandchildren but at the same time manage the social and environmental issues associated with such growth. The use of digital tools in planning is shown to be on the cusp of providing new ways to resolve the growth vers impacts debate, but will require some new directions if they are to be mainstreamed.
