The Inner South East Metro region is identified in Plan Melbourne and includes the Local Government Areas of:

  • Bayside
  • Boroondara
  • Glen Eira
  • Stonnington

Though the region is the second smallest of all six Land Use Framework Plans, it is one of the most prosperous, with some of the city’s highest land values and a greater proportion of residents being professional workers. This is driven by the region’s strong access to Melbourne’s CBD where most professional jobs are located and its established, high amenity neighbourhoods.

The draft Inner South East Metro Land Use Framework Plan is a 30-year strategic vision which provides guidance on how we will:

  • Shape population and industry growth
  • Inform plans for services and infrastructure
  • Guide public and private sector investments such as Suburban Rail Loop.
  • Protect the distinctive and historic characteristics of the Inner South East Metro Region; and
  • Improve environmental resilience

The draft Land Use Framework Plan document sets out how we will achieve the above under six key themes:

  • Productivity
  • Housing Choice
  • Integrated Transport
  • Liveability
  • Strong Communities
  • Sustainability and Resilience
