Research interests

As part of the Productive Gold Coast project with the GCCC, Ned Wales and Hugh Maxey have been undertaking research into industrial and marine precincts within the city.  The project has been specifically focused on understanding how land-use has changed across various precincts. In the industrial areas there has been a major trend away from traditional light industry that dominated the areas in years past, with creative industries and business start-ups showing strong growth in these areas. The data collected during this study will assist us in understanding industrial land use changes post COVID and highlight work trends for small the medium size enterprise that are an important part of job creation within the city.  The emerging trends are indicating the degree of impact on housing typologies and infrastructure provision as well other economic trends experience around Australia. Over a thousand online surveys, face to face interviews and drive through observations have provided rich and current data sets that through analysis indicating emerging changes on how and where we work. The data will inform more relevant land use planning policy and adjustments to planning requirements based on a deeper understanding of the nature of work in the early part of the 21st  Century.
