Financial Costs of Settlement Patterns Spreadsheet Tool
A significant challenge for rural councils is managing settlement change and the associated infrastructure and service delivery costs to councils over time. RCV has developed a financial modelling tool which will have benefits for both the planning, infrastructure and the finance departments.
The Financial Costs of Settlement Patterns project has produced a modelling tool for rural and regional Victoria. The project received a commendation in the Cutting Edge Research and Teaching category of the Planning Institute Australia’s 2013 Victorian Planning Excellence Awards.
