A collaborative approach to economic growth
The Melbourne East Regional Plan 2020 is a future-focussed approach to meeting the demands of an increasing population, changing demographic and evolving workforce needs.
It sets out a plan for the Eastern Metropolitan Councils, State and Federal Government agencies, businesses and communities of interest to manage growth. The Melbourne East Regional Plan captures the increasing opportunity, the future prosperity and liveability of the eastern region.
The Plan will position Melbourne East to fulfil its vision of Australia’s premier lifestyle and business destination. The intent is to address regional challenges, and simultaneously, take advantage of the opportunities for positioning Melbourne East as a global business hub.
It outlines what is needed to sustain and grow the exceptional liveability of the eastern region as population grows, infrastructure ages, and future workforce needs evolve into the more high tech and high skilled employment opportunities.
The Melbourne East Regional Plan provides a roadmap for short, medium and longer term actions. The actions are linked to a set of six regional priorities that align with the current and future regional economies, to drive long term, sustainable economic growth:
- Investment attraction
- Precinct activation
- Import replacement
The Plan promotes collaboration across the three levels of government, the private sector, and communities of interest in a bold, technology-enabled and outcome-focussed regional economic partnership.
