    Abstract

    The recent re-entry of the Australian Government into urban and regional development has seen an outpouring of reports. This paper reviews these reports, and assesses their relevance to urban and regional policy. It is concluded that the reports' political impact is certainly noticeable, but their impact on the ground is limited. This is due to several factors, including the tendency to adopt pre-determined policy answers within an ‘efficiency-first’ framework.
