Parts of North and West Melbourne, Kensington, Fishermans Bend and Docklands have been identified for renewal, but will this relieve the strain on the metropolitan fringe? What forms could it take, and who might it provide for? Informed commentators will discuss the types of development, ‘up versus out’ and multi-centred cities, residential densities, appropriate business spaces, affordable spaces for artists and heritage in the city’s old industrial zones.

Panellists:

  • Jeff Gilmore – Executive Director Strategic Policy, Research and Forecasting, Department of Planning and Community Development, Melbourne
  • David Moloney – Industrial Historian, National Trust of Victoria
  • Dr Kate Shaw – ARC Research Fellow, Architecture Building and Planning, University of Melbourne
  • David Waldren – General Manager, Grocon Carlton Brewery Development

Moderator: Peter Mares – Journalist and Presenter ABC Radio National.
Discussant: Dr Ruth Fincher – Professor of Geography, University of Melbourne

6.00pm to 7.30pm. Entry from 5.30pm, Wednesday 23 March 2011
