Federal Government launches first national urban policy




The Federal Government’s first national
urban policy was launched yesterday by the Infrastructure and Transport
Minister Mr. Albanese. The policy, called “Our Cities, Our Future” underlines
the relationship between funding for projects with specific criteria relating
to productivity and sustainability. The areas in which the Government intends
to get involved in includes water, rail, urban density, climate change and
energy infrastructure.

The initiative has received positive
responses from the Property Council of Australia and the Council of Capital
Cities Lord Mayors.

We will be
reviewing the policy document in detail and provide specific details to our
readers with regards to transport issues, however if you would like to read the
document in full you can do so on the Department and Infrastructure and Transport website here.
