Metropolitan activity centres: performance measures

Activity Centres are a vital component of Melbourne's future growth. Melbourne 2030, the State Government's planning strategy to accommodate the forecast 1 million additional residents by 2030, encourages the development of Activity Centres to increase housing choice, reduce urban sprawl, make more efficient use of existing infrastructure and create a more sustainable urban form. Using a whole of Government approach, Melbourne 2030 aims to house a significant proportion of the extra 1 million residents in and around designated Activity Centres across Melbourne. Activity Centres are places where people work, shop, live, relax and recreate. They provide community focus, a sense of place, and consist of a greater mixture of land uses centred on a high quality transport node. Many already contain significant retail facilities in the form of a stand alone shopping complex or suburban strip shops. Government administration and health services are often located in Activity Centres, to strategically benefit from the good access to public transport. In setting a new direction for metropolitan Activity Centres, Melbourne 2030 outlines a range of integrated performance criteria for activity centres that reflect 'Melbourne 2030's vision, principles and key directions'.
