The Urban Development Program (UDP) provides an annual update on:

  • the pipeline of major residential redevelopment projects in established areas;
  • the supply of broadhectare residential land in Melbourne’s Growth Areas; and
  • industrial land supply.

The UDP collects information and feedback from sources across state and local government, as well as additional datasets on housing and associated land development.

In 2016 an additional report on State Significant Industrial Precincts (SSIPs) provides a detailed analysis of land use in the SSIPs including:

  • supply of land
  • consumption of land
  • building space
  • economic use of land
  • estimates of the exhaustion of vacant land

There are two reports available for 2016:

  • Urban Development Program: Metropolitan Melbourne
  • Urban Development Program: State Significant Industrial Precincts
