Melbourne is considered one of the most livable cities in the World. Its wide streets and parks have enabled a continued ease of movement and livability despite its continued growth. In 1837 Robert Hoddle (1794–1881), the officer in charge of producing a survey of the Port Phillip District, designed Melbourne’s city ‘grid’. He turned out to be a visionary town planner.
