Deliberative Development, Opportunities for Moreland Council

Research Paper




Echelon was commissioned by Moreland Council to prepare a paper which defined the various types of deliberative development models which exist in Australia and overseas and identify characteristics of the models, including:

  • Who is delivering the model/s

  • How the model impacts on housing affordability and design quality when compared against standard development models

  • What sort of home-seeker is interested in such models

  • The extent to which home-seeker can influence the development model

  • The potential benefits and risks of the models

The Paper includes various examples of deliberative development in Australia and overseas which indicates both the common factors in deliberative development projects as well as the key variables.

The Research Paper also outlines the potential opportunities for Council to support the delivery of the deliberative development models.
