This chapter progresses in two major sections. First, it draws on qualitative data
to explore the relationship between residents' practices of home-making and
opposition to higher-density dwelling. With a clearer understanding of resident
opposition, this section identifies key opportunities for the development of more
effective planning mechanisms to mediate opposition to HDH. Second, the chapter
explores the distribution of objection and appeal at the metropolitan scale, flagging the potential for urban elites to push-back with their own processes of
boundary-making, compromising compact city and participatory planning goals.
