RP2028: Development and trial of a co-benefits calculator

Project leader name: 
Professor Mark Stevenson, University of Melbourne
Project status: 
Project period: 

This project will develop a co-benefit calculator suitable for different stakeholders (government regulators, developers, precinct planners and designers, and community end-users) to measure the core health and productivity performance of existing or planned precincts. These health and productivity performance indicators can potentially be linked to key features of the built environment at a precinct scale (such as residential density, housing typologies, level of mixed use, open space – including type and quality, street network etc.) as well as attributes of the immediately surrounding area (e.g. public transport accessibility, cycle routes, schools, job density etc.).

CRCLCL Project Reports

Research has demonstrated that the design of cities directly affects population health and is also positively associated with levels of population productivity. Based on this evidence, this project developed and trialled a prototype low-carbon precinct co-benefits calculator (LCL-CBC)

The aim of this project is to develop and trial a prototype low-carbon precinct co-benefits calculator for use by urban planners and designers. The calculator will estimate co-benefits associated with a range of alternative precinct designs and transport/land use configurations across health,...
