Competing processes of border-making: compact city planning and resident's everyday territorialisation of home
This chapter progresses in two major sections. First, it draws on qualitative data to explore the relationship between residents' practices of home-making and opposition to higher-density dwelling. With a clearer understanding of resident opposition, this section identifies key opportunities for the development of more effective planning mechanisms to mediate opposition to HDH. Second, the chapter explores the distribution of objection and appeal at the metropolitan scale, flagging the potential for urban elites to push-back with their own processes of boundary-making, compromising compact city and participatory planning goals.
