Region. Urban degeneration

Outer suburbs are being planned in a way that could lock them in forever as lands of monotonous ticky-tacky housing, ultimately causing urban degeneration and run-down area.. The Australian Financial Review said this view by the Grattan Institute’s Tomorrow’s Suburbs report which said that complex zoning laws, monotonous housing and single-ownership town centres are preventing city-fringe suburbs from adapting and rejuvenating as their community make-up changes. The lack of community areas and transport created run-down areas in Western Sydney, such as , Mount Druitt, as the city expanded during the baby-boom years.
