The Esplanade and the City Gatekeepers: Contesting the limits of urban heritage protection

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapter

Abstract

In December 2013, after months of excavation with bulldozers digging and back-filling soil, and sand and barges dredging sediment and slurry, water from the Swan River flooded through a cutting into the Western Australian city of Perth’s Esplanade. The Esplanade was in the process of being redeveloped as Elizabeth Quay, a project that included the construction of a 2.7-hectare inlet and the creation of development sites, new internal roads, promenades and an island with a connecting bridge.
