The Victorian State Government recently released the Consultation Draft of Plan Melbourne, Melbourne’s new Metropolitan Planning Strategy. Brian Haratsis was a member of the Planning Minister’s Advisory Committee responsible for the preparation of the Strategy.
The Metropolitan Planning Strategy has important implications for the property industry, including identification of new urban renewal precincts in and around central Melbourne, major infrastructure projects for Government and the introduction of new planning processes to facilitate private investment. The State Government also intends to establish a new Metropolitan Planning Authority.
The Draft Strategy is now open for public comment until 6 December, 2013, and further details are available at the website: http://www.planmelbourne.vic.gov.au/
We welcome the opportunity to discuss how this important policy initiative may impact your projects.
