The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is a State Government statutory authority that reports to the Minister for Planning. Victoria is growing, with a projected population of up to 10 million people by 2050. It is the VPA's main task to make sure Melbourne and its regions remain a great place to live. This requires vision and long-term planning, to ensure Victorians have equitable access to employment, public transport, attractive public space and affordable housing.
