Survey of sustainable housing ‘will improve outcomes’

Councils are being invited to help prepare a snapshot of how policymakers and developers are improving the sustainability of urban infill and greenfield developments.

To that end, a survey is being disseminated to all professions involved in planning, design and construction of residential developments, with feedback being collated to help improve urban design and housing policies and practices. 

With environmentally sound urban development having become more important in recent decades, many developers have been creating water-sensitive, energy-efficient, and low-carbon urban developments.

The survey will help document the experiences and opinions of key actors who are involved in delivering all aspects of housing.

It will take about 10 to 20 minutes to complete. All responses will be confidential, and findings will be aggregated to safeguard anonymity.

Researchers from the University of South Australia, RMIT University, and the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) are managing the survey, which has been granted ethics approval by the University of South Australia (ID: 203944).
