Sustainable cities? Australia's building and planning rules stand in ... - The Conversation AU

Australia’s building and land-use policy settings fall well short of what’s needed to make meaningful progress toward creating sustainable cities.

You will find environmental sustainability goals and objectives in government strategy documents. But our newly released review of building and land-use planning policies around Australia has found New South Wales is the only state without serious gaps in legislation and enforcement.

Research shows a large percentage of new dwellings in Australia fail to meet even minimum building requirements when checked after construction.

There is little legislation and enforcement, with the notable exception of NSW’s Building and Sustainability Index (BASIX). This means neither building codes nor state planning systems are achieving sustainability goals required for a low-carbon future for cities and buildings.

Testing the sustainability of retirement income strategies - Money Management

Financial advisers have been identified as having a key role in the Government’s proposed MyRetirement regime.

Minh Ly looks at modelling strategies to help advisers help clients understand how likely a desired spending level can be sustained during retirement.

While retirement income strategies need to address longevity and sequencing risk, it is often difficult to test how robust strategies are against these variables. This is because of the mismatch between...
