Formatted Abstract/Summary
Planning can be seen as an essentially political activity that involves contestation of outcornes. At its simplest, this involves a contest between property rights and the public interest, but at a more complex and nuanced level it incorporates competition between different planning discourses and different motives underlying support for each discourse. This chapter argues that an understanding of these motives, in the form of the doctrines and habitus of protagonists, can provide deeper insights into the basic forces shaping planning conflicts.

The chapter uses a hierarchical framework to consider the various influences of planning discourse, doctrine and habitus in conflicted planning situations. Support for particular discourses is viewed as being frequently driven by certain doctrinal beliefs and, more deeply, by the specific work habitus of many protagonists. This framework is argued in the next section. It is then applied to two case studies involving the redevelopment of old port areas alongside Sydney Harbour: inner west Pyrmont-Ultimo and the Darling Harbour precinct of Barangaroo.
