What is a peri-urban area and how are they changing?

Simone - Myth Buster

Simone has a rich background in human geography, demography and urban planning – a background that was useful in her previous roles in the Commonwealth and State Governments, and now as part of the forecast team at .id. From the Queensland coast to the southern suburbs of Perth, Simone produces population and dwelling forecasts that help local governments make informed decisions about future service and planning needs. She is a regular contributor to .id’s blog and has spoken at several conferences on how our cities and regions are changing. She is a big advocate of evidence-based planning and how Census and other data can inform this. Outside of work Simone is a keen traveller and photographer – interests that tie in well with her professional life and help her to understand “place”.

    The analysis of peri urban in South East Qld has been undertaken by several people Professor Daryl Low Choy , Healthy Land and Water and others. The population change indicates its popularity , but the diversity of land uses (and conflicts), a needed social survey and Biodiversity are relevant . The omission of Biodiversity ,Endemism and Biodiversity Hotspots and remainders of Greater Brisbane and SEQ Greenbelts is a National Disgrace, especially when the Property Council want a $5M Strategic Environmental Assessment of South East Qld for a one stop approval shop. This is amongst 10 largely undisclosed Preferred Future Growth Areas , MDAs, SDAs, and increasing Priority Development Areas(PDAs)
