Background on scenarios

To inform the development of the four scenarios, we engaged Beca Limited to first develop a set of preliminary scenarios to help understand the opportunities and constraints to accommodating growth in different parts of the City. We developed four deliberately contrasting scenarios  and evaluated the outcomes of each on a range of topics such as housing choice, transport, natural environment, and natural hazard risk. These preliminary scenarios were then refined further into the four growth scenarios above. For more information on these preliminary scenarios see the report below.
