This paper presents results from a survey of social housing providers, developers, planners and architects conducted in June-July 2013. It analyses how Government can promote affordable high density apartments in inner-city Melbourne.
There is increasing Australian and international interest in planning for health and liveability. This paper assesses the possibility of neighbourhoods that are a 20 minute walk, bike ride or public transport ride from services and jobs in the outer suburbs.
The paper examines actor behaviour and institutional cultures in the processes of Active Transport to School (ATS) policy implementation in local government through an investigation of the Cities of Glen Eira and Boroondara, two middle-ring Melbourne council areas with quite different ATS outcomes.
