- Opportunities for sustainable coastal regeneration addressing social, economic and environmental challenges.
- To evaluate the effect of neoliberal approaches on the delivery of public goods in coastal redevelopment projects. High gross development values are often compromised by abnormal development costs, such as ground contamination and flood mitigation, which can affect viability and negate the potential for the cross-subsidy needed to deliver affordable homes.

- The effectiveness of planning mechanisms to deliver public goods for affordable housing in waterfront redevelopment (SDG 11.1).
- The effectiveness of planning mechanisms to deliver public goods for reducing the environmental impact of new urban development (SDG 11.6).
- The effectiveness of planning mechanisms to deliver public goods for the public realm and open space in waterfront redevelopment (SDG 11.7).
