The Challenges ahead – keeping human scale at the forefront of city growth

Some interesting survey results have been released recently. Firstly, the Economist Intelligence unit 2018 Global Liveability Index showed that Perth has dropped out of the top 10 of the World’s Most Liveable Cities, or rather has been overtaken by other cities like Adelaide, and Melbourne’s top spot for the last 7 years has been taken up by Vienna. So, what does this add up to? It all points to the fact that modern life, and especially living in a growing city in a complex and multi layered eco-system, can be challenging.
