This paper considers how debates around urban adaptation and growth management are structured in the discourses of local government, private developers and other actors in Queensland, Australia. The analysis highlights the discursive strategies employed by different actors and the way their arguments have been consolidated in the practices of urban policy-making. It suggests a divergence of growth and adaptation storylines, contributing to maintaining the gap between these policy agendas. Progress may be made, however, in the pragmatic discourses of actual policy implementation
