Infrastructure Victoria is updating Victoria’s 30-year infrastructure strategy.
As part of the update, we are consulting with the community on how increased density can help more people live in great locations. Our consultation involves small focus groups in Footscray, Camberwell and Heidelberg where participants will discuss what density done well looks like. Feedback from the focus groups will help inform our recommendations on density in the updated 30-year strategy. There will be an opportunity for all Victorians to provide feedback on these recommendations when the draft strategy is released in mid-2020.
About the strategy
We developed Victoria’s first ever 30-year infrastructure strategy in 2016. This statewide, evidence-based strategy covers all types of infrastructure and was developed in consultation with stakeholders and the community.
An update of the strategy is underway and will be released in 2021. We will publish a draft strategy in 2020 for an eight week period of formal consultation with the community and stakeholders.
Updating the strategy is important to ensure our advice on Victoria’s infrastructure needs and priorities remains current, reflects changes in policy settings and responds to emerging challenges.
To set the scene, Infrastructure Victoria published Growing Victoria’s Potential in April 2019 which examines the challenges and opportunities of Victoria’s population growth. Underpinning the paper is a package of research. This includes an examination of the cost of infrastructure provision in different development settings and regional and metropolitan profiles which outline the unique strengths and challenges in different parts of Victoria.
