Abstract

This paper considers the capacity of urban network and community-based planning to generate global knowledge flows and human-scale environments. It presents a study investigating the presence, relative density and distribution of innovation-supporting infrastructure surrounding major train stations in five cities. Four are highly-innovative, mid-size cities: Boston, Portland, Stuttgart and Dusseldorf. The fifth is Joondalup, a city in Western Australia which has similarly targeting knowledge development and innovation but has not received the same global recognition. This paper contributes to discussions of how local-global linkages and social capital building capacity of local urban planning can support innovation and knowledge development. It suggests that an analysis of localised spatial infrastructure and amenities of innovation indicate a region’s propensity to fulfil new economy priorities.
