Development opportunities

Increasing development opportunities in the inner and middle suburbs

With limited space, we need to think more about how we use the land we do have. Plan Melbourne sets out the principles and planning rules that need to be applied.

Active planning is underway to make better use of land no longer required for its previous industrial land use. These new precincts include Fishermans Bend, Docklands, and Arden. The Government is currently developing plans for each of these precincts.

This will mean more land available for more Victorians to make their home.

The Metro Tunnel provides the opportunity to connect growth areas in Melbourne's west to the growing knowledge workforces and residential communities in Docklands and the Arden precinct as well as established areas including Parkville and the CBD, and existing communities in North Melbourne and West Melbourne.
