Setting a direction and weighing which initiative to undertake in your community can be overwhelming. Places+Spaces is a comprehensive modelling and decision-making tool designed to evaluate the effects of policy and development options.
Places+Spaces assesses alternative development pathways. Pathways are framed with respect to levers (policy options, investment choices in social and physical infrastructure) and impacts (community well-being, resource consumption and financial viability).
Places+Spaces traces the complex relationships between levers and impacts. It is a simulation model that incorporates community-specific data in assessing economic, infrastructure, health, ecosystem, energy, emissions and quality of life outcomes of a policy or development decision.
Places+Spaces is developed by a unique public/private research partnership between researchers, planners and modellers.
