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
Roman Trubka presented the project at the CRCSI Road Show in Hobart that had 32 external attendees. The presentation was very well received with much enthusiasm from the planning constituency.
The development of ENVISION by AURIN in their online portal has been approved, and we are currently waiting for legal agreements between all parties to be finalised.
A large update to the ENVISION demonstration toolset has been implemented, which includes a new walkability index, a new slope index, a new extra land index, a new relative extra land index, a new serviced indicator to allow the exclusion of properties without basic water services from queries, a new heritage indicator to remove heritage properties from a query, a new age demographic indicator for the 0-19 year age range, the addition of the SNAMUTS indicator for WA to compliment the PTAL indicator in VIC, as well as a number of other fixes and adjustments.
Roman Trubka has modelled residential, commercial, industrial and miscellaneous land-use impacts from public transport infrastructure and service level investment for James McIntosh’s PhD research on Value Capture that compliments the Greening the Greyfields project and will be integral to Module 3’s toolset development.
