Infrastructure Victoria has published research on the cost issues associated with infrastructure supporting residential development in Melbourne and three regional cities.

The research builds an evidence base to support analysis of where housing development and infrastructure investment should occur, considering different settings ranging from established to greenfield growth areas.

One of the top recommendations in Victoria’s 30-year infrastructure strategy is to increase the proportion of housing in areas that are well serviced with infrastructure. Our research explores this further to inform our understanding on where development and infrastructure investment should occur in the urban area, and across regional cities.
