Suburbs are the invention of another era. Far flung from the city centre, removed from places of work and largely made of stand-alone houses, suburbs could only have happened thanks to the motorcar. But with transport our second largest GHG emitter, it’s time to rethink the way we move – and it all starts with where we live. A clutch of new approaches are emerging, from intensification to careless neighbourhoods and placing housing around public transport nodes. But not everyone likes the new approach. To discuss how are suburbs changing I’m joined by Eloise Gisbon, climate change editor at Stuff.
