More than 80 per cent of Australia’s population live in cities that collectively generate over 80 per cent of our economic wealth.

A bi-partisan commitment to planning and delivering better cities; to working collaboratively with the states and territories, and with industry, to prioritise and fund the infrastructure we need for jobs, growth and a better way of life is now more urgent than ever.

This plan to improve infrastructure funding and strategic planning in Australian cities has been developed by the Urban Coalition, a diverse coalition of built environment groups including the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA).

The Urban Coalition members are:

  • Association of Building Sustainability Assessors
  • Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council
  • Australian Conservation Foundation
  • Australian Institute of Architects
  • Consult Australia
  • Green Building Council of Australia
  • National Growth Areas Alliance
  • Planning Institute of Australia
  • Property Council of Australia
  • Urban Development Institute of Australia
