Abstract/Summary The benefit obtained from certain types of public land such as parks, walking and bicycle trails, public facilities, hospitals, schools, transport links, coastal foreshores and water frontages is universally recognized. Conceptualising these benefits within a liveability framework is new, complex and challenging. The 'Contribution of Public Land to Melbourne's Liveability' report has been prepared for the Victorian Environmental Assessment Council (VEAC) as part of its 'Metropolitan Melbourne Investigation', an investigation of Crown land and public authority land in 29 municipalities in metropolitan Melbourne. The Terms of Reference for this investigation require VEAC to report, amongst other things, on the contribution of public land to Melbourne's liveability and the opportunities for enhancing this contribution. The report provides a conceptual framework for categorising and measuring the contribution public land makes to Melbourne's liveability. The framework is developed through an examination of liveability theory relevant to Victorian policy discourse, together with a review of liveability and environmental literature correlated to public land use within Melbourne.
