Formatted Abstract/Summary
The changing approaches to the planning and management of the metropolitan region centred on the State capital of Brisbane since the 1990s refect three diferent planning paradigms built around collaboraton, the centralised exercise of power, and hierarchy. The changes have occurred as the needs of the plan producton and implementaton processes have altered over tme (Minnery 2009). Understanding these changes is facilitated through the use of a collaboratve governance framework (Ansell and Gash 2008).

When it started in 1990 as the SEQ2001 project the regional planning approach was deliberately collaboratve and inclusive (Abbot 2001; Margerum 2002). The negotated result was an agreed but purely advisory framework for growth management, which supposedly provided guidance for local governments, the private sector and State government agencies, but was in fact ofen ignored. Collaboraton was adequate for plan producton but, as is ofen the case, was not enough for implementaton (Ansell and Gash, 2008; Wier, Rongerude and Ansell, 2009). Collaboraton and agreement were replaced by the exercise of statutory power and then to the exercise of hierarchical power under pressure from stakeholders seeking some certainty over future developments and as regional planning spread to the rest of Queensland.

The changes in planning paradigms – from collaboraton to the exercise of power to hierarchy – provide lessons about collaboratve planning and its implementaton that may be applicable to metropolitan planning outside South East Queensland as well as providing an avenue to assess the efcacy of collaboratve planning itself.
