AGM Presentation by Professor Michael Buxton
Warm thanks to the 44 members and supporters who attended our AGM by zoom on 8/12/20. After the existing committee was elected unopposed, we heard from our patron and guest speaker, Emeritus Professor Michael Buxton, planner par excellence and author of more than 80 books and papers and 20 research projects. His latest book is The Future of the Fringe: The Crisis in Peri-urban Planning.
Highly relevant to his AGM topic, the latest government options paper: Planning for Melbourne’s Green Wedges and Agricultural Land, which sets out to improve Green Wedge protection but has some disturbing options.
Introducing Prof. Buxton, our president Kahn Franke suggested his next book could be titled: The Precarious future of the Fringe.
