Measurement and Benchmarking Study, VPA

Echelon in conjunction with PJM Economics have recently undertaken a study to measure liveability across a range of suburbs and development sites within Victoria for the VPA.


The study assessed case studies in inner, middle, outer and regional Victoria against a hybrid methodology utilising existing policy and researched benchmarks. The case studies were selectively chosen to gain a understanding of how a range of areas from Victorian era suburbs through to current greenfield developments are performing in delivering liveability to residents. The data required for assessment involved an extensive desktop investigation to access, document and present clear and consistent data.


The results and findings are to assist with the creation of future policy benchmarks/standards for measuring liveability in Victoria.
