Local Action – Time to have your say on Melbourne 2030
Public submissions are now being accepted as part of the first audit of Melbourne 2030.
“Constructive feedback will help us take positive steps forward to fine-tune the way we plan for the future and manage growth,” Planning Minister Justin Madden said. “This process is about listening to the wider community and learning how we can improve the implementation of Melbourne 2030. The Government will maintain the basic principles of Melbourne 2030 but we want the community’s input into how we implement this crucial policy.”
A user-friendly electronic guide to submissions and the submissions process is available online. Submitters are encouraged to use the forms provided on the website when making submissions.
“Our commitment to a more prosperous, liveable and sustainable city is as strong as ever. We want to listen to what the community has to say about Melbourne 2030 so far and learn from the first five years of its implementation,” the Minister said. “The audit is an excellent opportunity to take stock of the implementation process and how we can do things better so that Melbourne remains one of the most liveable cities in the world.”
Submissions can be made until 24 September 2007.
An independent auditor, Audit Expert Group, will review submissions from the community, local councils, industry and key stakeholders, to ensure all interested parties have their say about the ongoing implementation of Melbourne 2030. The expert group is expected to submit its report and recommendations to the Minister in early 2008.
