  • Volume 24 Issue 1 - Assessing mining impacts on road travel conditions in
           an intensive coal mining region in Australia: A case study of the northern
           Bowen basin
    • Abstract: Akbar, Delwar; Kinnear, Susan; Chhetri, Prem; Smith, Phillip
      Road transport networks are essential for the sustainability of mining activities as well as the liveability of mining communities. This paper examined the impacts of mining activity on road travel conditions in the Bowen Basin region. A pressure-state-impact-response (PSIR) framework was used to identify the impacts of mining activity. Pressure (i.e., development), state (i.e., change) and impacts (i.e., effects) were identified by reviewing environmental impact assessments of selected coal mines' travel trips and commodities flow modelling. Following this a household travel survey was distributed to residents of the Moranbah and Emerald townships in order to explore mining communities' level of satisfaction with their road travel experiences. The study found that the poor pavement condition, safety and congestion was associated with over-dimensional vehicles. Other issues raised included perceptions of poor driver behaviour, particularly in regard to speed, inattention and fatigue. The research identified road user's support for confining the movement of wide loads to low-traffic periods (such as overnight), and introducing carpooling arrangements to reduce congestion and addressing the issues of accidents and driver fatigue. These findings have planning implications to future transport planning in the Bowen Basin region as well as other inland and intensive mining regions.

  • Volume 24 Issue 1 - Merging big and small: A cautionary tale from barraba
    • Abstract: Wallace, Andrea; Dollery, Brian
      Structural reform through compulsory municipal mergers has been a recurring theme in the history of Australian local government. However, the results of numerous episodes of council amalgamation, especially in rural and remote Australian communities, have largely been ignored by both the architects of structural reform programs and the broader scholarly community. The present paper seeks to remedy this neglect by examining the consequences of compulsory council consolidation through the lens of the 'lived experience' of the small rural community of Barraba, which was forced to merge with much larger Tamworth in 2004.

  • Volume 24 Issue 1 - Modelling endogenous employment performance across
           Australia's functional economic regions over the decade 2001 to 2011
    • Abstract: Stimson, Robert J; Flanagan, Michael; Mitchell, William; Shyy, Tung-Kai; Baum, Scott
      Patterns of spatial differentiation in endogenous regional employment performance across Australia's Functional Regions over the decade 2001 to 2011 are mapped and analysed. A range of spatial econometric models taking account of the spatial autocorrelation issue are used to investigate the factors which might explain that variation in performance, using the same approach as in previous studies of decadal inter-census periods. Implications for regional development policy are canvassed.

  • Volume 24 Issue 1 - Nature and importance of small business in regional
           Australia, with a contrast to studies of urban small businesses
    • Abstract: Hettihewa, Samanthala; Wright, Christopher S
      Regional small businesses (Regional-SBs) are considered important to sustaining regional socio-economic viability. However, the presence, nature, and causes of differences between Regional-SBs and Urban-SBs are often overlooked in the literature and in the development of regional policy. This study shows the presence and import of such differences by applying theory and statistically contrasting a sample from 2 195 Regional-SBs with published average-Australian-SB data. It was found that, on average, Regional-SBs are profoundly more durable and, hence, creditworthy than average Australian-SBs, but may be at risk because they are slower in applying new technology. The durability/survivorship of Regional-SBs is strongly influenced by their attributes, including size. More studies on the extent and causes of variability in SB durability are needed.

  • Volume 24 Issue 1 - Questioning the value of government support for
           start-up, knowledge-intensive companies: Emerging evidence and future
    • Abstract: Hefferan, Mike; Fern, Andrew
      Australian governments at all levels have identified the opportunity to broaden the economy through the support of entrepreneurial activity within knowledge-intensive business sectors. Many such enterprises were in an early, start-up phase. While much of this activity was initially focused in the capital cities, government regional support schemes were also introduced. A particular feature of many of those schemes was an uncharacteristic willingness by government to become involved in the direct financial and other firm-specific support for small, largely untested companies.

      It is recognised that these sectors require different models of government support. Further, it would be na ve to believe that simple input - output relationships fully reflect the value of such economic and regional development programs. Nevertheless, given that many of these schemes have been in operation for some years, it is reasonable to ask if this type of government support, that particularly targets those start-up level firms, is well placed.

      This paper represents the first publication from wider PhD and other investigations into these areas. Surprisingly perhaps, the research has found no truly comprehensive, longitudinal studies on the impact of such schemes anywhere in Australia. However, the recent emergence of significant research from elsewhere in the OECD now questions many of the underlying assumptions that have driven these types of initiatives as regional economic development tools.

      This paper, based on those studies and consultation with key informants, concludes that some reappraisal and re-alignment of these types of programs in Australia is now both timely and opportune.

  • Volume 23 Issue 3 - The Latrobe valley: The politics of loss and hope in a
           region of transition
    • Abstract: Duffy, Michelle; Whyte, Sue
      This paper suggests that in places like the Latrobe Valley in south-eastern Victoria, Australia, that are undergoing significant change and transition, the narratives describing historical and contemporary feelings about such change are integral to a better understanding of how certain politics of emotion and affect are mobilised. Subsequently implications of this for regional futures are explored. The article traces the origins of the Latrobe Valley's coal industry and the establishment of its mining communities, with specific attention paid to narratives of communal belonging and loss as government involvement in the region shifted from a somewhat benign paternalism to the neoliberalist ideologies of the 1980s. This history is integral to current narratives about a perceived ongoing ignorance or lack of consideration on the impact of economic and social decisions made for this region. This paper focuses specifically on interview material that arises out of the work undertaken by the Community Wellbeing Stream of the Hazelwood Health Study. This interview material offers a means to examine participants' emotional connections and responses to change. Through an analysis of this material the aim was to uncover the role such narratives may play in mobilising responses to the region's current contexts and what this might tell us about future pathways.

  • Volume 23 Issue 3 - When politics meets economic complexity: Doing things
           differently in the Gippsland region, Australia
    • Abstract: Fairbrother, Peter
      Regional change and development is contested. The established approaches to social and economic change rely on either state intervention or a celebration of competition and markets, although often a messy combination. An alternative approach addresses political relations (who decides what and how) with socio-economic developmental proposals. This latter approach distinguishes between the foundational dimensions of a regional economy and the competitive aspects and initiatives. It also draws a contrast between patterns of change, focusing on the immediate (transitional) and the more long-term (transformational). The challenge is to exercise inclusive regional governance in relation to the opportunities and barriers to social and economic change. These themes are addressed in relation to the shift from a carbon-based economy to a less carbon reliant regional community, in Gippsland, the State of Victoria, Australia.

  • Volume 23 Issue 3 - The geographical political economy of regional
           transformation in the Latrobe valley
    • Abstract: Weller, Sally A
      This paper explains the Latrobe Valley's challenges from a geographical political economy perspective sensitive to the path dependent nature of regional change processes, to the influence of extra-local forces, to the socially constructed nature of regions, and to the inherently political nature of transformative change. The paper argues that the recent application of 'new regional' policies in the Valley-policies which aim to revitalize regions by promoting leadership, vision and local coalitions of elite stakeholders-have, in reality, replaced elected representatives with selected stakeholders and reframed the issue by stretching the spatial and temporal scales of action in a way that diminishes the apparent severity of the area's problems. This paper contends that because these interventions sidestep local political contestation, they deepen the disempowerment and disenfranchisement of the people of the industrial Latrobe Valley. Moreover, the process has enabled business elites in Gippsland to capture and redirect redistributive funding to sectors and locations that were never affected by the closure of coal fired power stations.

  • Volume 23 Issue 3 - Water and coal - transforming and redefining 'natural'
           resources in Australia's Latrobe region
    • Abstract: Alexandra, Jason
      Victoria's Latrobe Region is typically defined by its brown coal used for electricity production, but this focus obscures the complex histories and ecologies that underpin it. In this paper, assemblage theory is used to analyse the region's transformations and the core role played by not just coal but water and climate in shaping the region. A century of state sponsored coal development has resulted in the region's current economic reliance on fossil resources, but the recent closure of Hazelwood Power Station signals mounting pressures for decarbonising. In a climate of increasing constraints on coal use and uncertainties about water abundance, regional identities and resources are being redefined, highlighting the social co-construction of resources and regions. Analysis of the co-evolution and transformations of the region's carbon, water and society assemblages supports the idea of new assemblages emerging with altered carbon-water dynamics.

  • Volume 23 Issue 3 - Exploring the contribution of transitions management
           to inform regional futures
    • Abstract: Doyon, Andreanne; Coffey, Brian; Moloney, Susie; de Haan, Fjalar; Bosomworth, Karyn
      Regions around the world are facing intersecting challenges associated with economic and industrial restructuring, demographic changes, urbanisation, and climate change. Regional development efforts have primarily focused on an economic agenda but, have struggled to fully integrate environmental and social concerns. Climate change requires an integrated approach to addressing multiple regional challenges. This paper illustrates how Transition Management (TM) can provide coherence and direction to the transformative efforts of regional actors. TM is an innovative governance framework for managing complex problems. Informed by theory and practice, it has achieved considerable policy success in Western Europe. Yet, TM has only begun to be explored in Australian contexts. Our paper considers what transitions theories can contribute to regional scholarship and practice in Australian regions experiencing major economic, social, and ecological restructuring.

  • Volume 23 Issue 3 - Economies with people in them: Regional futures
           through the lens of contemporary regional development theory
    • Abstract: Eversole, Robyn
      Regional development theory seeks to understand why some regions are prosperous and others not, and what less-prosperous regions can do to improve. Theories of regional development originated in the field of regional economics, based on the analysis of economic dynamics at regional scale. Contemporary regional development theory now incorporates cross-disciplinary insights about how social processes such as collaboration and innovation drive regional economic competitiveness. In Australia, however, the regional development situation is complicated by cultural and policy attitudes that homogenise and peripheralise regions beyond the capital cities. Regional development theory gives practical guidance as to how rural and resource-based regions such as the La Trobe Valley can respond to the challenges of economic restructuring using endogenous development approaches. Yet in Australia, current ways of working regularly undermine the capacities that regions need to succeed.

  • Volume 23 Issue 3 - From sustainable to resilient regions': Shifting
           conceptualisations of regional futures: A closing review
    • Abstract: Coenen, Lars
      The contributions of this special issue pay tribute to the productive multiplicity surrounding our understanding of regional development. Although traditional theorizing on regional development has its origins in economic theory, the field increasingly incorporates concepts and insights from related disciplines. While economic thinking is recognized as part-and-parcel of the 'conceptual flow' prevalent in regional studies, its scholarship tends to keep its eyes wide open theoretically and look far afield conceptually. At the same time, Lagendijk (2006, p. 387) cautions for the risk of sloppy theorizing "by discursively weaving together rather diverse threads of reasoning taken from rather diverse domains [...] in quite a loosely associative, and strongly eclectic fashion."
