Community Insights From The 2021 Australian Liveability Census
Parks and open spaces, and shared amenities play a vital role in the liveability offered by our neighbourhoods, but not all are made equal. Different communities value different aspects of place, making it even more challenging to resolve similar issues in our diverse communities.
This presentation will explore the findings of the 2021 Australian Liveability Census. Run between March and June, the research project collected thousands of community insights from every State and Territory.
Community members across Australia shared what they value in their ideal neighbourhood and how parks and open spaces impact the liveability of their area, providing a baseline against which change can be tracked. The findings identify similarities and differences across our cities and regions, considerations for designers and planners, and investment areas for local governments.
