Density and localised economies

5 Aug 2010
Description

This second volume in the Melbourne Beyond 5 Million Series looks at what increased density means to the city and suggests ways of ensuring that such a population increase can make Melbourne better as it gets bigger.

The report discusses both negative and positive perceptions, connotations and challenges that surround density.  From assumptions that density equates to undesirable high-rise tower blocks and decreased comfort, to problems of construction affordability and risks of placing community character and open spaces in jeopardy, the document also acknowledges the value of both creating new localised economies and reinforcing those that already exist.
