The Healthy Liveable Communities Urban Liveability Checklist is the culmination of a five-year research program, that included creating a set of validated built environment indicators that promote health and wellbeing. The checklist has been designed as a simple and short tool for planners to apply in established or proposed urban areas to assess its liveability and potential to improve health and wellbeing.

The NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Healthy Liveable Communities was established to investigate cost-effective built environment interventions to create healthy and liveable communities in Australia. It aimed to be a source of high-quality, policy relevant research to inform health-promoting urban design and planning.
