Urban entrepreneurialism reflects recent changes to economic and political sensibility and emphasises the regulation of urban space in ways that promote market-based approaches to the restructuring of the built environment. The contradictions and controversy surrounding the Mt Barker foundry and the Pelican Point power station in South Australia provide an opportunity to revisit the place of urban social movements in this 'entrepreneurial' politic of a state Liberal government in the late 1990s.
