The Truth About Suburbia


The Suburban Alliance commissioned MacroPlan to undertake an evidence-based case study analysis of Springfield and North Lakes Masterplanned communities.

Applying a triple-bottom approach, the case study explores the economic, social and environment outcomes and deliverables of these communities in relation to the inner city Brisbane area.

It also provides a critical appraisal of how investment and activity in these masterplanned communities has and is changing over time relative to the inner city area.

To complement this study, the Suburban Alliance has put together a series of myth-busting videos to reveal the truth about suburbia.
