Better Apartments Discussion Paper

In May 2015, Better Apartments – A Discussion Paper kick-started a statewide conversation with the community, government and industry to help shape potential future apartment design guidelines and mechanisms. The discussion paper focused on how to better manage the amenity of apartment living and maintain Victoria's liveability. 

People were asked to rank the key issues affecting apartment amenity by most to least important. The top five issues were daylight, space, natural ventilation, noise, and energy and resources. 

The Better Apartments project is a joint initiative of the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and the Office of the Victorian Government Architect.
