14 November 2012 — The discussion paper, “Melbourne – let’s talk about the future, is open for public submissions. The paper is part of work currently underway in preparation for a new Metropolitan Strategy for Melbourne’s next 30 years of growth and change. A draft Metropolitan Plan will then be shaped from the current consultation around these principles, due for release in autumn 2013. The paper focuses on nine principals around three key themes which include what most people value about Melbourne, what needs to change and implementation considerations. Urbis will be providing in-depth presentations to industry on the draft strategy when it is released. The discussion paper is available here.
