The Liveability Project
The Liveability Project seeks to identify the liveability indicators that makes the towns and suburbs across Interface Councils (including Mitchell Shire), a destination to live . It is in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services and RMIT.
The initial project provides a baseline of what the minimum requirements are for liveability, and will assist Mitchell Shire with its future planning by ensuring these liveability indicators are part of precinct design and planning.
The project feeds into a statewide campaign that calls for a whole-of-government response to address the liveability challenges being experienced in the Melbourne’s outer suburbs.
