The Life-Cycle Impacts of Public Housing Renewal in Victoria report is intended to strengthen the evidence-base for a life-cycle approach to public housing renewal strategies in Victoria. Public housing renewal decisions cannot be made in isolation from other social, environmental and economic objectives. The report promotes a life-cycle approach to Victorian public housing which engages with key considerations (Life Cycle Assessment, Circular Economy, Climate Resilience, and Community Health and Wellbeing) and analyses three basic models of renewal of public housing approaches (Demolish and Rebuild, Retrofit, and Retrofit and Infill).
