Summary The chapter discusses the governance modalities that have underpinned the form, ubiquity and character of Australian suburb, highlighting the shift from 19th century imperial to colonial rule; the ongoing role of the self-builder, the rise of public provision and then privatization of infrastructure, the relative power of the planner and land developer and more recent debates over the increasingly privatized and polarized suburbs.
