Melbourne, let’s talk about the future26 Oct 2012
Planning Minister Matthew Guy has released a Discussion Paper to inform the development of the new Metropolitan Planning Strategy. You’re invited to join the conversation and have your say about Melbourne’s future.
Victorians are encouraged to share their views about the ideas raised in a Discussion Paper as part of the development of the new Metropolitan Planning Strategy.
Planning Minister Matthew Guy released the Discussion Paper at a planning industry symposium in Melbourne on Friday 26 October.
How we plan for growth and change will be the key to ensuring that our city remains one of the most diverse, distinctive and liveable cities in the world.
Feedback received from the community and industry groups will help shape the final Metropolitan Planning Strategy, which will act as a blueprint for Melbourne’s future for the next 40 years.
The Discussion Paper has been developed by the Victorian Coalition Government’s Ministerial Advisory Committee based on input from local councils, industry and peak bodies as well as vigorous research and analysis.
Over the next few months a series of community and industry forums, information sessions and roundtable discussions will be held regarding the Discussion Paper.
