Formatted abstract
The aim of the study is to develop a rational and consistent approach to the survey and assessment of Brisbane's interwar suburban character, as a means of identifying such areas, (and ensuring their ongoing retention as part of the planning system). Within this framework, the objectives of this study are:

* To trace the historical development of Brisbane in an attempt to determine how and when the distinctive character, which became well established between the world wars, evolved.

* To examine the development of inter-war character in the regional context, and the importance to the region of Brisbane's contribution to that character, and the approach to the recognition of that character by other local authorities.

* To isolate the elements of this character and analyse each of these elements.

* To adapt this analysis to an assessment methodology.

* To apply the methodology to an area known to have been developed between the wars, with a view to determining the extent to which the area has retained its inter-war character.

* To examine the current planning scheme in Brisbane and determine the risk that exists to these areas in terms of the loss of character, with particular reference to the zoning system.

* To examine an approaches taken outside Queensland which seeks to preserve character within a local authority planning scheme.

* To propose a planning approach, compatible with Brisbane's Town Plan, addressing the requirements of the retention of inter-war character, together with achievement of higher residential densities.
