Planning Power: The uses and abuses of power in the planning of the Latrobe ValleyBy David Langmore
From its beginnings in the 1920s, power generated from the Latrobe Valley’s brown coal has come to supply most of Victoria’s electricity. This has had massive physical, economic, environmental & social effects in the Latrobe Valley as well as huge political and economic implications for Victoria. Research reveals extraordinary stories about the influences of organisations, personalities, procedures, principles and politics and a fascinating case study emerges about both planning and power.
