20-minute City



The idea of a "20-minute city" is appealing but could it really be achieved when a huge employment hub called CBD and almost-purely residential suburbs around it exist? The complex relationship of mobility and accessibility need to be well understood first.
"One of the better objects of Plan Melbourne is to create '20-minute neighbourhoods' in which jobs, schools, shops and community services within a 20-minute walk, bike or public transport ride from home. Matching employment with residential location is difficult at the best of times. Proximity can be encouraged via a good distribution of affordable housing and job types, with multiple transport links so people have choices about where they live and work."
