Key reports

Pacific Regional Coastal Susceptibility (2015)

regional-coastal-susceptibility-front-cover.jpgThis report develops and applies a methodology for the rapid and informed assessment of the susceptibility of Pacific Island coasts to change from climate-driven forcing. The Lead Author is Professor Patrick Nunn from the SRC

Sustainability Indicators Report 2012

Sustainability at the regional scale can be assessed by examining environmental, social, economic and governance indicators. Annual monitoring of sustainability indicators on the Sunshine Coast provides valuable insights into sustainability trends at spatial and temporal scales of relevance to the community.

The SRC investigated the annual sustainability trends for the Sunshine Coast in 2012, with the findings from the study available in the report below. The report includes information on 20 indicators of sustainability and is based on a range of primary and secondary data.

Senior Living Report

The 'Infill Development for Older Australians in South East Queensland' report is based on a research project conducted in partnership with people 55 years and older in southeast Queensland to design liveable, affordable and sustainable neighbourhoods and accommodation in areas appropriate for urban consolidation.

Importantly, it illustrates the preferences of older people through their own photos and words, and provides examples of innovation achieved through a collaborative design process.

Research Award Logo

The contribution of this innovative research project was recognised by the Queensland Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) in 2012, winning an Award for Excellence in the Cutting Edge Research and Teaching Category. In September 2013, the research won the Australasian Research Award for participatory research from the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2).

The resulting principles and accommodation typologies not only confirm seniors’ innate understanding of some commonly accepted urban design principles, but they paint a vivid picture of what older people find appealing and supportive as they age. The research shares a new-found understanding of older people’s needs and preferences for shaping the built environment in the sub-tropics.

This book is intended to be used by developers, non-profit care providers, planners, builders, and policy-makers as a guide to how to meet the challenge of providing liveable safe spaces for older people in a densifying community. It provides justification for a change from ‘business as usual’, to delivering an accessible product to an increasingly knowledgeable and discerning seniors’ market.

Methods

More than 42 people over 55 years and older from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast participated in this study throughout its several stages during a year, starting early in 2011. The study used participatory methods with seniors including:

  • PhotoVoice to identify key supportive mechanisms and challenges for seniors in the built environment at both the neighbourhood and accommodation levels

  • Charrettes to engage seniors in the design process

Research partners

This research was undertaken at the University of the Sunshine Coast by Associate Professor Claudia Baldwin and Professor Laurie Buys (QUT) (Chief Investigators) and Dr Caroline Osborne from the Regional and Urban Planning Program, and co-authored with Phil Smith from Deicke Richards. The research project was supported by a collaboration of four groups:

  • Queensland Government’s Urban Land Development Authority
  • Sunshine Coast Council
  • Churches of Christ Queensland – a not-for-profit aged care services provider
  • Deicke Richards – a Brisbane-based architectural and urban design firm

Kim van Megen of QUT also contributed from the disciplines of gerontology and urban design.
