Carbon use in poor Victorian households by local government area

by Unkles, Bill | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Stanley, Janet.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008Description: 5 p. : maps + appendices.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 5) April 2008Summary: As the imposition of a carbon price is planned in Australia to encourage movement away from carbon-based energy, this mapping exercise illustrates the uneven pattern of carbon use by poor households across Melbourne and across Victoria. The pattern is largely related to transport and urban planning issues. The findings point to the need for policies which will offset the regressive impact of a carbon price, to ensure that disadvantaged households are not unfairly penalised.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).

Creating accessible journeys /

by Victorian Council of Social Service.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Victorian Council of Social Service 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2011 Bibliography p. 55 Appendices pp. 52-55Summary: This report has been produced by the Victorian Council of Social Service (VCOSS) to examine the progress towards improving the public transport system in Victoria to meet the needs of a greater variety of users, including people with diverse mobility requirements. It builds upon information collated for our previous report of the Accessible Public Transport Watch Project, which surveyed the mobility needs of people with disabilities. This report uses information from that report, combined with interviews with public transport agencies, the results of a public consultation forum on accessible transport, and relevant academic publications to draw its conclusions. While the total transport system also includes private motor vehicles, taxis, aviation, shipping, active transport modes and community transport services, this report concentrates upon land-based scheduled public transport passenger services and related pedestrian movement in Victoria: i.e. buses, trains, trams and coaches.Availability: (1)
