National Cities Performance Framework - Interim Report

National Cities Performance Framework

https://cities.dpmc.gov.au/performance-framework

Australia's success in the 21st Century economy depends on our cities, suburbs and regional centres.

The Australian Government's Smart Cities Plan is committed to creating the foundations for success across all cities and regional centres.

Delivering on this commitment starts with common goals, agreed across governments, and an ability to measure their delivery over time.

The National Cities Performance Framework supports this approach, measuring the performance of Australia's largest cities.

The Performance Framework will be the first of its kind in Australia, bringing together critical data in an easily accessible online format.

In one location, you will be able to track the performance of cities across key measures: jobs and skills; infrastructure and investment; liveability and sustainability; innovation and digital opportunities; governance, planning and regulation; and housing.

The Performance Framework will support all governments to better target, monitor and evaluate cities policy. It will be key to the Government's commitment to continuous improvement through City Deals.

Consultation on the National Cities Performance Framework Interim Report

The Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation, the Hon. Angus Taylor MP, released the National Cities Performance Framework Interim Report on 20 July 2017.

We are seeking your input on the Interim Report. You can provide input through our survey document until 18 August 2017. Please send your completed survey documents to cityperformance@pmc.gov.au. Your input will inform development of the final National Cities Performance Framework Report and a National Cities Performance Framework Online Dashboard to be released later in 2017.

Thank you for taking the time to assist in the development of the Performance Framework.

Media release

Interim National Cities Performance Framework is vital policy architecture

20 Jul 2017 Property Council of Australia

The release of the Interim Report on the National Cities Performance Framework is a positive step in the development of credible, rigorous cities policy says the Property Council of Australia.

“This framework brings some rigor to the question of whether our big and small cities are successful or not”, said Ken Morrison, Chief Executive of the Property Council of Australia.

“What gets measured gets done – and this framework will assist policy makers in our big cities as well as our smaller cities and regional centres.

“Our cities are growing because they are magnets for skills, jobs and investment and we have to plan for that growth.

“The economic and social ecosystems of our cities need not be haphazard. We can plan not just for the placement of roads and infrastructure, but also for the vital building blocks that lift private sector investment, create long-term jobs, and improve skills, health, liveability and the environment.

“Minister Taylor is going about this the right way. Through the Cities Reference Group, which the Property Council is part of, the Minister has brought together a broad coalition of groups, to provide advice on the policy directions needed.

“The Interim Report provides for further public comment on what measures should be included in the final National Cities Performance Framework.

“We believe there is one area of potential improvement for the Interim Framework and that relates to housing affordability and the ability to properly assess housing supply.

“The big gap is the lack of data on housing supply which is a critical part of the housing affordability equation, and we again call on the Turnbull Government to reinstate the National Housing Supply Council to plug this gap.”

Queensland Times --> FAIR GO: Cities performance report is missing key indicators

Quote
A KEY report that will help the Federal Government rate the performance of cities is missing key indicators such as ambulance response times and whether councils are following their own policies. 

The National Cities Performance Framework Interim Report, which aims to measure the performance of Australia's largest cities including 16 in regional Australia, was released this week.

The report looked at cities and regions including Townsville, Sunshine Coast, Mackay, Cairns and Ballarat.

Chair of lobby group Regional Capitals Australia and mayor of Greater City of Geraldton Shane Van Styn said the report was a first look at how the Federal Government would track the performance of cities across areas such as congestion, employment, housing affordability, livability and sustainability.

He said the government would use the report's findings to analyse its investments into cities as part of the Smart Cities program and in particular the Cities Deals.

The intergovernmental partnership is aimed at making cities a better place to live and do business.

But at the end of the report was a long list of indicators that were excluded because of issues of data availability, measurement and comparability.

Among those are emergency services response times, the compliance rates of councils to their own policies and how many homes are in disaster-prone areas.

Cr Van Styn said many of those indicators were excluded because groups such as the Australian Bureau of Statistics or the Census did not collect the necessary data.

He said in order for the cities to be accurately compared the data sets needed to be the same.

"The object of the Cities Reference Group is to use data that has been collected and you can't retrospectively collect data," he said.

"The data collections points are a matter for the ABS and government departments.

"It's a resourcing issue and different states have different priorities for collecting data.

"We would call on there to be more data collected."

Cr Van Styn said the report was starting to measure livability and sustainability in cities, not just factors such as congestion and housing affordability.

He said as Australia's productivity continued to be challenged by growing congestion costs and jobs losses through a transitioning economy an analysis of regional cities needed to be at top of the government's agenda.

"Regional cities have so many competitive advantages - affordable housing, access to quality health and education, a relaxed lifestyle, strong jobs offering in the service sectors, and importantly, land to grow," he said
