Monash University is collaborating with the City of Greater Geelong to better understand resident’s attitudes to infill housing proposals in Melbourne and regional Victoria.

Infill housing helps to achieve more sustainable cities through denser development close to services, employment and public transport, but is often patchy or poorly implemented causing many communities to oppose change in traditional low-rise suburbs. This research will help cities to better work with residents through a shared understanding of what is important to our communities in our neighbourhoods.
