    I'll add stuff to this thread as I come across it. Not game to read this whole thing in a single sitting Population Target - Increase permanent population of city to 26,000 by 2010. Increase overnight population to 34,000 by 2010. Both targets are double of the 2001 population figure. End of June 2004: Permanent residents - 14,361 (+627 on 2003, +1,530 on 2001). Way behind target, however when you look at last year's increase compared to the prior years, the pace has improved...

Adelaide tops cities survey, Sydney last

Adelaide tops cities survey, Sydney last

Adelaide is the country's best-planned and most functional city, while Sydney languishes in last place.

Property groups have commissioned a KPMG audit which ranks capitals on effective city planning, including managing population growth, traffic congestion, and housing affordability.

The audit found smaller cities like Adelaide, Canberra and Darwin functioned the best.

Adelaide shone for being affordable and well-planned, while Brisbane joined its smaller counterparts in scoring well. The Queensland capital was praised for having good planning policies.

At the other end of the scale, the big cities of Melbourne, Perth and Sydney ranked poorly.

Sydney was panned for being unaffordable with too much traffic; planning policies were not great and were not implemented properly.

Melbourne was a mixed bag. The auditors found that good planning policies were in place, but authorities failed to deliver on the ground.

The audit was commissioned by "Built Environment Meets Parliament" (BEMP), an alliance of property groups including the Property Council of Australia and the Australian Institute of Architects.

The average mark for capital cities was 55 per cent. BEMP said the audit was a wake-up call to the federal government to be more hands-on with capital city planning.

Canberra should set a national urban policy with targets, streamline planning approval, and get involved in land release, the group said.

BEMP will hold a summit in parliament house on Wednesday to talk about what should be done.
