Growth Corridor Plans

The Growth Corridor Plans are high level integrated land use and transport plans that provide a strategy for the development of Melbourne’s growth corridors over the coming decades.

These plans will guide the delivery of key housing, employment and transport infrastructure in Melbourne’s new suburbs and provide a clear strategy for the development of the growth corridors over the next 30 to 40 years.

The Growth Corridor Plans focus on four metropolitan growth corridors over the coming decades and will provide for housing, jobs, transport, town centres, open space and key infrastructure across our city’s newest metropolitan suburbs.

The plans also identify broad transport networks, industrial and employment zones, residential areas and recreation precincts.

Developed and completed over 18 months, the Growth Corridor Plans will help deliver sophisticated new suburbs with great town centres, attractive and affordable housing and jobs close to home.
