Liveability and accessibility in higher density urban housing and precincts are critical to maximise investment and minimise future risks to our community.
This research was guided by a need to shift from a cost-based focus to better understanding the benefits and long-term value derived from liveable and accessible housing precincts. It aims to build a better understanding also of government, industry and not-for-profit roles in shaping industry structure and driving new urban forms, and improving the adoption of liveable and accessible design outcomes.
The research has developed a Liveability Framework for Medium to High-density Social and Affordable Housing. The intent is for the framework to be used by our SBEnrc partners, and the social and affordable housing sector.
