Outer suburbs liveability - what matters most to you?

We're one of 10 Interface Councils in Victoria. Interface Councils believes the 1.6 million people we represent should have access to adequate public transport, local jobs, education, health and community services, community facilities and uncongested roads. The Interface Councils are currently developing a liveability policy and we need your input to help address these gaps by taking a short survey about what will make your neighbourhood and community more liveable and help people in the outer suburbs to access jobs, services, education and other opportunities that are available in other parts of Melbourne. Take the survey here.
