Paul Babie, ‘Three tales of property, or one?’

This article examines three tales of property which emerged from a recent planning law saga in Queensland from late 2014 to June 2015. Although each tale appears to offer a different interpretation of private property, this article suggests that the three tales are really one, but told with differing emphases on the issue of regulation. It reimagines the concept of private property and its relationship to regulation and explores the state’s role in using planning law as a tool to constrain the power of property to affect the lives of others.
