The Victorian Government has announced the release of Plan Melbourne 2017-2050, the refreshed plan builds on Plan Melbourne 2014 and previous metropolitan planning strategies including Melbourne 2030 and Melbourne@5million. Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 aims to guide Melbourne’s growth from now to 2050. It attempts to address climate change, housing affordability and transport priorities to create a clear direction for planning and a clear vision for Melbourne and Victoria.

Plan Melbourne 2017–2050 is guided by nine principles which are supported by seven outcomes together with the policy directions that will be taken to reach those outcomes.The structure of Plan Melbourne 2017–2050 is different in a few places to the structure of Plan Melbourne 2014.

Key changes to Plan Melbourne 2017–2050 include:

  • A new outcome (Outcome 4) focuses on preserving our sense of place and identity so Melbourne remains a distinctive and liveable city with quality design and amenity.
  • The Melbourne 2050 Plan replaces the Integrated Economic Triangle concept. The Melbourne 2050 Plan sets out state significant land use elements and supporting infrastructure.
  • It will be reviewed and updated in line with the Government’s response to Infrastructure Victoria’s 30-year infrastructure strategy.
  • Completed initiatives, such as reviewing residential zones or introducing the free tram travel zone in the CBD, have been removed and remaining initiatives updated to become either policies or actions.
  • Actions, and in some instances initiatives, have been updated and included in a separate five year Implementation Plan setting out how Plan Melbourne 2017–2050 will be delivered.
