Thriving cities: Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council
A federal policy platform to deliver integrated infrastructure, housing and places for more productive, liveable and sustainable communities.
The amenity, functioning and vitality of our cities are fundamental to the wellbeing of our communities, and the
prosperity of our nation. Sustainable cities save money, are more liveable, and result in healthier citizens. Australia has for the first time in its history established multiparty consensus supporting a national approach to cities, which has seen the value of better urban policy understood. In recent years, the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC) has welcomed the appointment of a Federal
Minister for Cities, the release of the National Cities Performance Framework and the launch of City Deals across Australia.
