As I mentioned a while back, this weekend I’m off on a holiday to Vancouver for a couple of weeks. I have a bit of an affinity for Vancouver – particularly its transport system and the way it has developed over the past few decades. A fairly rare case of a city doing things right in the post-war period.
A few things I’m probably going to try and get a better understanding of during this time include the following:
- What are the little things that make Vancouver’s public transport system so successful?
- Where is development happening in Vancouver and in what form is that development occurring?
- What is Vancouver doing to improve its housing affordability, given that it’s often ranked as the city in the world with the least affordable housing?
- Has Vancouver managed to get public support for intensification – and if so how?
I think that calls for a time-lapse video:
With both Matt and myself overseas, as said previously Guest Posts will be most welcome.
