Our service

Urban Affairs, formerly a service of Elton Consulting, is now owned by WSP Australia Pty Limited. It is a news bulletin service focused on urban planning and development. It presents the latest news and research on the issues of urban design, development, construction, housing affordability, sustainability of built form, community engagement, transport and infrastructure.

Each news item contains a link to primary documents from politicians, government agencies, peak bodies and research organisations. Urban Affairs does not re-publish newspaper articles – each bulletin item links straight to the primary document or webpage from the source organisation.

The great majority of our content is not reported by the general media. The Urban Affairs bulletin will keep you informed of the latest news and research, and can highlight opportunities as they arise.

The Urban Affairs bulletin is tailored to suit business, government, and other organisations involved in urban planning and development, and the many industries that surround it.

Under the Search tab you’ll find a searchable database of items and source documents from previous email bulletins.

Happy reading!
