The NSW Government Bureau of Transport Statistics has collected key transport indicator data, as outlined in the below table and summarised for the SHOROC Region (year 2010/11) as follows:

  1. 26% (315,000) trips are made by public transport or walking (up from 25% in 2006). on-track
  2. 68% (824,000) private vehicle trips. (down from 71% in 2006).on-track
  3. 29 minutes is the average work trip travel duration (down from 31 minutes in 2006).on-track

This data will be utilised to monitor future increases or decreases in travel indicators over time.  Transport indicator data is collected by the NSW Government Bureau of Transport Statistics every 5 years.

Note: SHOROC is lobbying for gas data and renewable energy data to also be made available. Without gas and renewable energy usage data SHOROC can’t fully determine if a reduction in energy consumption is due to improved energy efficiency or because users have changed from electricity to gas or other renewable sources of energy.

2. Ratio of annual stationary energy consumption per capita in KwH from renewable and non-renewable energy sources (excluding travel).

not available Indicator is not yet available

Green Power collects quarterly and annual sales data from retailers at a national and state level for residential and commercial renewable energy usage. This information is not yet available at the Local Government Area (LGA) level. This gap in LGA level data currently prohibits effective monitoring of the ratio of annual stationary energy consumption per capita in KwH from renewable and non-renewable energy sources in the SHOROC Region.

In 2011 SHOROC wrote to the NSW Government requesting that the Government require energy retailers to release data on Green Power purchases at the LGA level. No response has been received to date. The Local Government and Shires Association 2011 Annual Conference also resolved to urge retailers to release LGA level GreenPowerdata.

Data is however available on the solar generation exported to the grid. Based on this data there has been a significant increase in the amount of solar generated electricity exported back to the grid:

  • An increase from 541 to 9,754 MWh per annum
  • An increase of 73% from 2010-11 to 2011-12

Housing Affordability for Key Workers Back to top

Key Indicator

Housing affordability for key workers.

Target (SHOROC Region)

Increase in affordable housing for key workers over time.

What is the current situation/trend?

off-track Indicator is off-track

The Bankwest key worker housing affordability report, March 2011 tracks housing affordability for five groups of key public sector workers – nurses, teachers, police, officers, fire-fighters and ambulance officers.

An area is classified as unaffordable if its median house price is more than five times the salary of a key worker (ie. >5). The review has been compiled using earnings data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Employee Earnings and Hours survey and annual median house price data from Residex.

As outlined in the below table, housing within all local government areas (LGAs) that comprise the SHOROC Region are well above the level classed as affordable and there has been a minor 0.06 decrease in the rating for the region from 2005 to 2010.
