Liveability report for Melbourne (Australian Urban Observatory, 2020)
The economic, social, environmental and health co-benefits of urban liveability are now recognised by all levels of government in Australia and globally. Liveable communities are safe, socially cohesive and inclusive, and environmentally sustainable. They have affordable housing linked via public transport, walking and cycling infrastructure, to employment; education; shops and services; public open space; and social, cultural and recreational opportunities. Read through this report to see how Melbourne ranks in these liveability factors.
