That is why Plan Melbourne has a separate 5-year Implementation Plan

The implementation of Plan Melbourne will be overseen by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and involve the participation of many implementing partners, including government departments, agencies and local councils. Metropolitan Partnerships and other groups will support the implementation of many of Plan Melbourne's actions, including the engagement with local communities about their priorities.
A monitoring and reporting framework has been developed to track the progress of the implementation of Plan Melbourne. Plan Melbourne and its Implementation Plan will be formally reviewed every five years.
Progress reports will be publicly available and published yearly.
Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 is the metropolitan planning strategy to manage Melbourne's growth and change over the next three decodes.

The updated plan builds on the extensive work and consultation underpinning Plan Melbourne 2014 and previous metropolitan strategies and guiding policy documents including Melbourne 2030 and Melbourne@5million.
