NATIONAL CITIES PERFORMANCE FRAMEWORK MUST MEASURE THE TREND TO URBAN LIVING (FED)

20th July 2017

The National Cities Performance Framework issued by Federal Cities Minister Angus Taylor is an excellent initiative to ensure more data is available to measure city performance but more measures are needed on urban apartment living, says the Urban Taskforce,

“The National Cities Performance Framework sets out many important measures that are essential to monitor the performance of Australia’s cities,” says Urban Taskforce CEO, Chris Johnson. “We are concerned however that the data seems skewed towards a detached house view of our cities with little measurement of the swing towards more urban apartment living.”
