This study examines the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Government's navigation of its land-use planning law to implement a supermarket competition policy. It shows how big issues of competition and planning are worked through the particulars and processes of legal regulation. The study tests whether local planning law might balance economic diversity and urban amenity with the competitive strengths of the major supermarket chains. It provides insights into ACT planning law.
