This project will develop a co-benefit calculator suitable for different stakeholders (government regulators, developers, precinct planners and designers, and community end-users) to measure the core health and productivity performance of existing or planned precincts. These health and productivity performance indicators can potentially be linked to key features of the built environment at a precinct scale (such as residential density, housing typologies, level of mixed use, open space – including type and quality, street network etc.) as well as attributes of the immediately surrounding area (e.g. public transport accessibility, cycle routes, schools, job density etc.).
