by Victoria. Department of Planning and Community Development.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Victoria. Department of Planning and Community Development 2012Description: x, 94 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2012Summary: Great cities don't just happen. For more than 150 years Melbourne has benefitted from sound strategic planning and investment in transport, water storages, parks and social services. Melbourne has a history of designing and developing quality spaces and buildings. In 2012, the city now faces new challenges if it is to remain a great place to live, work, visit and do business. In order to meet these challenges, the Victorian Government is preparing a new Metropolitan Planning Strategy for Melbourne. The Strategy will set a vision for Melbourne to the year 2050 and, together with eight regional growth plans that will cover the balance of Victoria, a state-wide blueprint for managing growth and development. This Discussion Paper has been prepared to generate debate and discussion among Melburnians about the future of our city. As a community we need to talk together about the future.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Submission to Inquiry into Liveability Options in Outer Suburban Melbourne : Outer Suburban / Interface Services and Development Committee (OSISDC) / Sonia Martin (BSL)

by Martin, Sonia | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: 22 p. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence submission to Inquiry into Liveability Options in Outer Suburban Melbourne.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: This submission was written by Sonia Martin, with contributions from George Myconos, Sharon Bond, Victoria Johnson, Nadine Cameron, Helen Kimberley, Iris Levin, Sally James and Paul Smyth, and edited by Deborah Patterson. Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence recognises the critical intersections between housing, employment, education, health, welfare, and access to services and facilities. We also recognise the complex challenges the state government faces in addressing the interconnected issues of population growth and housing affordability. The Brotherhood maintains that planned social infrastructure is the foundation of economically and socially inclusive development and is not a residual, post hoc response to economic and social system failures. Critical to this endeavour is a social investment plan that recognises appropriate urban change as an entitlement of citizens across the life course and ensures that all have what they need to lead flourishing lives. Supportive governance structures are essential. We support a model of collaborative governance across all tiers of government that allows for meaningful determination at the local level and builds capacity to work together. We have focused this response to the Terms of Reference on population, private housing, and health and services delivery issues and have limited our comments on infrastructure issues. Due to the limited local data on median house prices and population growth in outer urban areas specifically, we have not addressed Term of Reference 3 separately, but have included some data in other sections of our submission.Availability: (1)

Submission to the Inquiry into Growth Corridor Plans /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2011Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence supports and welcomes the Growth Corridor Plans. We agree with the principles underpinning the Growth Corridor Plans, especially those which are seeking to: create diverse and vibrant new urban communities; integrate transport and land use planning; plan for local employment creation; create growth corridors with high amenity and character; and stage development to ensure the efficient and orderly provision of infrastructure and services. In order to meet the community service needs of children, young people, families and older people in urban growth areas, we argue there needs to be appropriate physical infrastructure within those localities. As a priority, we request the state government to set aside land and a community sector capital fund to support the establishment of locally based infrastructure and integrated youth services.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
