What are the benfits of the package?Wallan Free Library

  • It establishes for the first time a simple, consistent and effective ‘bottom-up’ planning tool that informs service and facility planners from all levels of government and the private sector”;
  • It provides a means of avoiding the often ad-hoc community infrastructure planning of the past;
  • It provides a true forward planning / predictive modeling tool through the application of small area population projection data;
  • It provides a framework which leads to:

       better resource allocation and decision making;
       common discourse;
       further benchmark / guideline analysis and development; and
       comparable analysis (intra-service)

  • Leads to locally responsive service provision that better meets the needs of any given area; and
  • Identifies issues for further research.

Who is the eSPP aimed at?

  • prospective private operators such as those seeking to establish child care centres and nursing homes.
