Based on the experiences of young people growing up in Melbourne's peri-urban areas, this article argues that while their sense of well-being is shaped in part by their built environment, a physically deterministic policy approach is an insufficient response to the projected population growth in these areas. Policy makers should investigate the concept of social cohesion as a superior basis for their thinking.
