Project summary

The Googong Smart Community: Smart Suburbs Blueprint aims to better integrate smart technology into new suburbs. The Googong development in Queanbeyan will be a smart suburb showcase, leveraging smart technology to drive better outcomes, both during initial suburb development, and then subsequently as the suburb becomes a living community.

Project outcomes include improved resource efficiency, community health, urban amenity, safety, suburb design/delivery, and innovation. To scale up these outcomes, the project will also deliver an open source Smart Suburbs Blueprint that other councils and developers can use to create new smart suburbs for Australia.
