Like most learning, the practice and application of indicators is often informed by other indicator initiatives. Many of these initiatives include indicators that have been developed within large urban contexts, particularly the application of spatial neighbourhood level indicators. This research will present the learnings gained from applying neighbourhood level spatial indicators in health and municipal planning across a number of municipalities in regional Victoria, Australia. It will provide results of the indicator assessments across different regions, the unique applications in regional areas and describe how the indicators have been used to build partnerships within communities and across different tiers of government. The research demonstrates how indicators are a powerful source of evidence for policy development, partnership building and community engagement.
