Making livable environments

Our cities: building a productive, sustainable and liveable future (submission)

March 2011

The Commonwealth Department of Infrastructure and Transport conducted a consultation process through the early part of 2010 to develop a national urban policy. The final policy document, Our cities, our future, was released in May 2011. National Shelter provided a detailed submission to this process (‘Our cities: building a productive, sustainable and liveable future – a response from National Shelter’), outlining some of the key housing aspects of urban development and particularly issues of affordability in housing.
