This paper provides a generic and useable transition path from sustainability intent to sustainability implementation, using a North Queensland, Australia, case study. The inseparable nature of land use, nodal and transport corridor densities; local needs-meeting and consequent urban travel to and through activity centres provides a coherent intellectual framework, implementation rationale and methodology to achieve greater sustainability. This paper uses urban travel research and a 90-person one-day Paths to sustainability workshop held at James Cook University, Townsville in 2008. Aligned with other like current publications, it is hoped this paper helps urban planning decision-makers head more successfully and deeply into sustainable planning directions within an intellectual framework of applied science.
