It’s council election time, and we know it can be difficult to sort through all the campaign material. If you’d like some guidance on how much each candidate will support a more beautiful, liveable and accessible city, read on. We’ve given each candidate a score out of 5, based on:
- their response to our survey;
- our review of their public statements;
- our perception of their understanding of the magnitude of the problems that we need to solve; and
- our view of their capability to both comprehend and communicate the complexities of integrated transport and land use planning.
Here’s our scorecard:
Here’s a copy of our survey questions. Note that the questions and answers were only one part of the assessment process, as described above. Some candidates offered long format answers, instead of yes/no. Some candidates had extensive policy documents published online, while others had little, or lacked specificity.
The scorecard doesn’t show candidates who had not responded by 4th October 2020, and did not have any published policy on integrated transport and land use planning, that we could find.
