Melbourne residents ‘to guide future of city’

By Belinda McGuire

Residents across Melbourne will be sought out for their opinions on what will improve the city for the future.

So owners of real estate in Rowville may want to prepare to hear from their local government, as Victorian planning minister Matthew Guy said that councils will drive the community consultation process.

It's all part of the Metropolitan Planning Strategy, which looks to propose initiatives for bringing Melbourne into the future.

Mr Guy said that community feedback can snowball into a wealth of ideas.

He explained: "Local government, community groups and residents across metropolitan Melbourne and Victoria are encouraged to have a say in how to plan for a vibrant and liveable city.

"Every individual or group that engages in the consultation process could drive a further ten, 20 or more people to be involved."

By consulting the community, Mr Guy added, strategies can be developed that will ensure Melbourne is one of the most liveable cities in the world for generations to come.

Funding is available from the government to pay for workshops – covering expenses associated with holding community consultation events.
