8 May 2012 – Victorians have been asked to comment on metropolitan planning in the next step towards a shared vision for the state.

Planning Minister Matthew Guy said: “Our new strategy must be able to be rolled out in a way that meets short, medium and long-term goals, and, above all, unites our community.”

A new ministerial advisory committee will coordinate the strategy, chaired by Melbourne-based international urban planner Professor Roz Hansen.

The strategy will take a long-term view of growth and change across Melbourne and its influence on and relationship with regional Victoria, other Australian capital cities and internationally.
