Liveable Sydney 2016_____

Liveable Sydney 2016

On Monday the 1st of August, the Domain Liveable Sydney 2016 study illuminates the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald, while numerous articles inside and online offer an insight into the Harbour City's most liveable suburbs.

In partnership with Domain and Deloitte Access Economics, Tract have produced Liveable Sydney 2016. The study is the first of its kind to consider the liveability of all Sydney suburbs.

The study ranked all 555 suburbs of Sydney based on the consideration of 16 indicators used to measure the qualities of a suburb.

Indicators included aspects of a place such as access to public transport, employment, education facilities, and parks. Other uniquely Sydney indicators included the availability of harbour and ocean views and proximity to beaches.

With Sydney ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities, this study considers the liveability at a local level by comparing suburbs across the city.

The chosen indicators have considered liveability from a broad perspective for the population as a whole and seek reflect the quality of a suburb as a place to live.

Day two of Sydney's celebration of liveability arrives with new content and new discussions, notably, this article by our own Town Planner, Georgia Sedgmen regarding the future of Sydney's burgeoning western suburbs and the need to create local employment opportunities.

One of the most interesting findings from the study was the comparison of liveability with house prices revealing suburbs that may be under-priced relative to their liveability. The top 10 “sweet spots” were published by Domain on August 5 2016, however we have a full graph with all suburbs also available.
