The scope of this report is focused on the Games Village itself, and while it ensures that the village requirements needed for the Commonwealth Games can be met, this thesis is more concerned about what will happen to a Village Post-Games and how to build it into a sustainable community. This report entails the part of Sustainable community.
Kaid Benfield, Sustainable Communities program director at the Natural Resources Defense
Council (NRDC), uses the term “sustainable communities” to describe places “where use of
resources and emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants are going down, not up; where
the air and waterways are accessible and clean; where land is used efficiently and shared parks
and public spaces are plentiful and easily visited; where people of different ages, income levels
and cultural backgrounds share equally in environmental, social and cultural benefits; where
many needs of daily life can be met within a 20-minute walk and all may be met within a 20-
minute transit ride; where industry and economic opportunity emphasize healthy,
environmentally sound practices.
