In Australian cities, new ‘greenfield’ suburbs are being built at a remarkable rate. These new suburbs are often well designed to suit the needs of their initial residents. Yet in a generation the demographic profile of local communities can shift radically. As residents change, neighbourhoods need to change with them – or they won’t be good places to live.
The new Grattan Institute report, Tomorrow’s suburbs, argues that we must build in flexibility right from the start, and shows how it can be done. At this free public seminar Jane-Frances Kelly, Director of the Cities Program at Grattan Institute, will discuss the report and its implications with Andrew Whitson, General Manager – Residential Development, Victoria, Stockland, one of Australia’s largest property developers.
For those not able to attend in person, this event will be streamed live. Please note that there is no need to register for the live stream, simply access the link at the scheduled event time to view online.
