Urban Consolidation in Melbourne 1988-2003

This monograph starts from the proposition that if the Victorian government is to achieve its objective for a more compact Melbourne, a better understanding of recent trends and impacts of medium density developments is needed. Thus, a primary aim of this report is to contribute to this understanding and thereby assist future policy development.

The report describes the changing nature of urban consolidation in Melbourne in the context of government policy from the late 1980s to 2003. It also compares two periods, 1997-98 and 2002-03, the amount of medium density development categorised by development size, approved in four municipalities (Boorondara, Stonnington, Port Phillip and Yarra) and its location particularly in relation to public transport. These elements form an important aspect of the debate on medium density development in Melbourne.
