This report gives an overview of findings from the Work, Home and Community Research Project conducted by the Centre for Work + Life, University of South Australia, between 2006 and 2009.
The project undertook research in ten Australian suburbs (including some located on the outer rim of Adelaide), examining how workers and residents put together their work, home and communities in four master planned communities, four 'traditional' suburbs adjacent to these planned communities and two inner urban, harbour-side master planned communities.
This overview report draws together the views of residents (both adults and teenagers) as well as workers, business owners and community service providers and provides specific stakeholder recommendations to government, planners, developers, businesses, schools and individuals.
