Liveable Infrastructure

Feb 11, 2019

Metropolitan Victoria are growing at an unprecedented rate. The Eastern Metropolitan region is expected to have a total population of 1.36million by 2050. It is important that as metropolitan Victoria grows that the standard of liveability increases.

We believe that:

  • High density residential developments put a strain on existing local infrastructure;
  • Land developers of high-density establishments should contribute to local infrastructure improvements to meet increase demand;
  • Urban developments must accommodate bus lanes and bicycle paths in their designs;
  • Increased public transport options to reduce road congestion;
  • Green infrastructure should be included into urban developments to increase our environmental sustainability as well as our mental and physical wellbeing.
