Abstract/Summary The study was funded by the Australian Communities Foundation through the Green Cities Innovation fund and undertaken by a team of researchers from RMIT University across the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies and School of Property, Construction and Project Management. The research was conducted from April 2016 to April 2017 and is intended to inform the development of ongoing discussion, policy development, and a program of research which builds upon the research presented in this report. Part of the challenge in improving sustainability outcomes through building and land-use policy settings is the limited research into attempts at implementation and the tension in implementation between these two policy domains. The aim of this project was to begin to address this gap and examine why the planning and building system is failing to achieve sustainability goals and what can be done to improve current policy and regulatory frameworks, and their implementation. In doing so, the project analysed the role of building and planning policy and regulations in delivering sustainable buildings and cities.
