Managing Melbourne

A Review of Metropolitan Melbourne's Strategic Planning

In preparing Plan Melbourne, it is worth reviewing previous plans for Melbourne to see what lessons we can draw.

This paper examines planning policies for Melbourne since 1954 and presents a number of 'lessons'.

These lessons are structured under a number of themes:

  • Connecting to Victoria
  • Projecting growth
  • Shaping the city
  • Decentralisation
  • Employment
  • Housing
  • Urban renewal
  • Height, heritage and character
  • Transport investment
  • Open space
