Public
and
Private

 Thesis
Statement
 • The
balance
between
public
and
private
influence
in
the
public
private
 partnership
(PPP)
during
the
redevelopment
of
Melbourne
Docklands
 was
swayed
towards
that
of
the
private
sector.
Public
opinion
and
 consultation
was
secondary
when
plans
and
development
agreements
 were
being
formed.
This
paper
also
raises
the
question:
was
this
the
 only
way
to
make
the
regeneration
of
a
disused
industrial
wasteland
 that
is
Docklands,
economically
viable?

 Background
 • 220
Hectares
of
waterfront
land
and
harbour,
located
immediately
 west
of
the
of
the
Melbourne
CBD
 • Since
the
late
1980s
Docklands
has
undergone
significant
 regeneration
 • Joint
development
venture
between
Public
and
Private
sectors
(PPP)
 • Shaped
by
several
different
phases,
political
agendas
and
economic
 climates
–
including
past
redevelopment
attempts
(CFM)
 • “One
of
the
most
adventurous
and
ambitious
waterfront
 developments
in
the
world
and
the
largest
urban
renewal
project
in
 Australia’s
history”
(Petty,
2005)

 Public
Private
Partnership
 • “Private
business
becomes
involved
in
financing,
designing,
 constructing
and
owning
or
operating
public
facilities
or
 services”
(Hodge,
2004,
p.
37).

 • Balance
between
this
“mega
credit‐card”
facility
and
the
risk
 government
faces
when
transferring
public
assets
into
private
hands

an
example
of

and

 • 
PPP
was
lubricated
by
the
creation
 of
a
single‐purpose
development
 Authority
–
The
Docklands
 Authority
(DA)
 • The
DA
acted
to
channel
private
 investment
into
Docklands,
free
 from
political
interference

 • Influenced
by
private
interests
–
 The
Committee
for
Melbourne

 Results/Discussion
 • Private
influence
dominated
‐
Market
led
development
ideology
 • But
Remarkable
outcome
‐
$9
Billion
of
Development
to
date
–
with
little
 impact
on
the
public
purse
–
undoubted
commercial
success
 • Docklands
is
what
Melbourne’s
CBD
needed
–
high‐end
corporate
space
 (Mark
Birrell,
Minister
for
Major
Projects)
 • Would
not
have
been
developed
to
the
extend
it
has
without
strong
private
 influence
(Alan
Stockdale,
Treasurer)
 • Lacks
vital
civic
space
(i.e.
Town
square)
but
Tabarts
30‐metre
margin
crucial
 to
retaining
public
ownership
of
the
water
(Michael
Lindell,
Consultant)
 • Still
a
work
in
progress,
should
be
judged
accordingly
 • To
be
socially
desirable
first
needs
to
be
economically
feasible
