What is it?

In our work, the 202020 Vision has identified high levels of frustration and uncertainty that comes with a change in government, their policies, and funding priorities, especially with regard to the provision and quality of open space for development. 

To overcome this issue, we seek to better understand - and find solutions to - the many, various and sometimes contradictory policy requirements from all levels of government (at the local, state and federal level) that can hinder developers from incorporating green space into their projects. Importantly, we’re also seeking to understand whether a paradigm shift to focus on quality, over quantity of green space is required. 

"In their green roofs policy, the City of Sydney has skipped disincentives and incentives and that's really important in empowering the industry to take action"
