Plan Melbourne projects that the population of Melbourne will grow from 4.5 million to almost 8 million - with Victoria’s total population set to reach 10 million by 2051. The Victorian government identifies the need to “plan and invest wisely to: cater to the needs of a more diverse and ageing population; break the link between congestion and growth; address housing affordability; mitigate and adapt to climate change; and ensure social and economic opportunities are accessible to all”.
The Authority’s role in planning for growth is to ensure that the health infrastructure required to meet the needs of the current and projected future population is in the right place, at the right time and is effective and sustainable. Masterplanning of existing healthcare precincts and sites or potential new sites is key to effective planning.
Our masterplanning guidelines will assist you in initiating a masterplan study, implementing masterplanning principles, understanding the process and preparing a masterplan report.
