Rationale for town planning – the 1929 report of the Melbourne’s Metropolitan Town Planning Commission
It is very hard to figure out what problem town planning is trying to resolve (e.g. see my Quora question)
Will comment on the justifications in due course.
In this regard, there is a report called “A history of built form control in central Melbourne” by Ramsay Consulting, that is no longer available online. I’ve scanned it and provided it here.
