This project is developing tools to apply spatial information to urban planning decision-making, for improved economic, social and environmental outcomes.
The project is informing urban planning decisions related to the redevelopment of the middle suburbs, in particular those precincts characterised as ‘greyfields’ which provide unique considerations for planning, such as
- existing community and social structures and networks not found in greenfields or brownfields
- the predominant private ownership of ageing building stock
- the need for upgrading civil and social infrastructure within the existing system
The team installed ENVISION on the computers in the Strategic Planning department of City of Canning, where they are using the tools and providing feedback for refinement.
Roman and Peter Newman presented at the CRCSI Roadshow in Perth.
Roman and James’s work is now being used Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW), after they presented at a TfNSW workshop on quantifying agglomeration benefits (Module 1) and on Value Capture for their new Light Rail Transit.
Stephen and Peter Newton presented at the University of Sydney symposium on planning.
The team submitted the initial documents to commence the AURIN ENVISION project, which will develop the ENVISION prototype system as a web-enabled toolset in the AURIN portal. They prepared a Position Description for a programmer, which has subsequently been filled. The new programmer is working with the team to develop the new AURIN system.
3 Papers this quarter: Stakeholder engagement and GIS, “Willingness to Pay” for rail transit, and productivity impacts of employment density and accessibility.
Two prototype versions of a redevelopment feasibility tool have been developed in ENVISION (one LGA-wide and the other operating at the precinct level) that can be included in the development of final AURIN version.
