"Creating Places for People"

That's the title of a draft report from the Australian Dept. of Infrastructure and Transport presenting model processes for creating high-quality urban environments.

Architecture and Design summarizes the report:

"The report was released by Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Anthony Albanese, who said it brings together a raft of new data that compares our cities with each other and cities internationally.

It identifies specific initiatives of local councils and state planning authorities which are proving effective at promoting more productive, sustainable and liveable urban communities."
