Case Studies and Research

Case studies to help inform great public spaces

We’ve collated case studies, research and community insights to share and build knowledge across local councils, state agencies and industry and will continue to add to these as programs progress.  They aim to inspire more, better and activated quality public spaces.  

The case studies are practical tools for capturing lessons learned and sharing insights gained through experience. The research and community insights build an evidence base to inform new thinking and tailored approaches in public space initiatives.
