Plan Melbourne Addendum (2019)

The Plan Melbourne addendum updates Plan Melbourne with the most recent population and employment projections. It includes additional information on industrial and commercial land requirements, information that was not available in 2017 and which further support Plan Melbourne’s directions and policies.  

It acknowledges further development of the Government’s long-term infrastructure agenda and updates the 2050 spatial framework map to include new transformational projects such as Suburban Rail Loop.

It also seeks to embed the 20-minute neighbourhood concept into major infrastructure projects, helping to create and connect neighbourhoods that enable people to meet most of their everyday needs within 20-minutes of their home.

It is to be read in addition to Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 and the Plan Melbourne implementation plan. It was prepared in recognition of changes that have occurred since the release of Plan Melbourne in 2017.
