About this inquiry

Australian Communities in urban and regional areas face increasing challenges in deciding where and how to build new infrastructure that will increase productivity and support our living standards. Population growth, demographic change, extreme weather events, increasing fuel costs, housing affordability, technological change, and resource limitations, make dealing with these challenges all the more difficult.
