Completed June 2016


Similar to planning laws, general legislation as it relates to green space is both varied, complex and operational at a local, state and federal level. Rather than interrogating each solution in its minutiae, the Tour suggests that we capture this information so that it is accessible to all (including policy makers!) and let our collective network knowledge determine which legislative tweaks would bring about the most urban green space.

The Legislation & Regulation Wishlist is an aggregation of policy tweaks at a local, state, and federal level that members of the 202020 Vision community would love to be adapted and changed, or done better.


We work with relevant parties to create a simple guide for legislators, which shows popular support for key legislation changes.


  • Provides the 202020 Vision network with an insight into what other network members are thinking and paying attention to that at a policy level.
  • Helps prioritise changes.
  • Provides an ongoing record that policy makers can access at any time to become inspired or gauge general attitudes and perceptions of our network.
