Policy & advocacy
We can all benefit from Australian towns and cities that are more productive, sustainable and livable. The Institute promotes policies and reforms that advance our urban environments and enhance our lives.
The Institute undertakes to help improve the quality of our built environment. We play an important role in shaping Australia’s future, working to raise design standards in our cities and towns, to position Australia as an international design leader and to make Australia a better place for all of us.
For policy and advocacy activity at the state and territory level, please visit the Institute’s individual state and territory Chapter pages.
2013 Federal Election
In the lead up to the federal election, the Institute surveyed the major political parties about their position on the Institute’s key policy priorities, as outlined in our document below Creating Australia’s towns & cities of the future.
The parties' responses are faithfully replicated in the document Federal Election 2013 Key Issues: Responses.
