Thoughts on economics and liberty

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)

I found this report here and have OCRd into a docx file here.  This should be read in conjunction with the Hansard of 6 December 1922 (pages 3444 to 3454). The OCRd Word version of the Hansard here.

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.
