What is a 20 minute neighbourhood?
Plan Melbourne 2017–2050 is the Victorian Government’s long-term planning strategy, guiding the way the city will grow and change to 2050. Plan Melbourne is supported by the principle of 20-minute neighbourhoods. The 20-minute neighbourhood is all about ‘living locally’. It allows people to meet most of their daily needs within a 20-minute return walk from home, with access to safe cycling and local transport options.
These connected and walkable places are where people can live, work and play; buy their bread and milk, work from home or at a local business, access services and meet their neighbours at community gathering places.
Plan Melbourne aims to make the 20-minute neighbourhood concept a reality for every person.
