Planning Liveable Cities: A place-based approach to sequencing infrastructure and growth
Planning Liveable Cities: A place-based approach to sequencing infrastructure and growth is the eighth paper in Infrastructure Australia's Reform Series.
The paper provides advice to governments, industry, and the community on how to appropriately sequence the delivery of housing and infrastructure.
Based on a review of Australia's five largest cities – Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Adelaide – the paper finds there are six challenges common to all of these cities when sequencing infrastructure and housing. The paper makes nine recommendations for an overhaul of the way we deliver new housing and infrastructure in our largest cities, proposing changes to current planning systems, governance frameworks, and funding arrangements to better manage our rapid population growth.
