Research & Event – The Health of Melbourne 2030: What Did The Experts Find? – 17 July

Posted in Events, Models, Policies, Research, Visions by Ferne Edwards on July 4th, 2008

Please view below the invitation to discuss the outcomes of the Health of Melbourne 2030 report with the discussion held by the VLGA. For more information about the background of the report, click here.

While the announcement of Development Assessment Committees took a lot of the public limelight recently, the findings of the Melbourne 2030 Audit Expert Group (AEG) that led to this and other State Government announcements were lost! As part of the first five-yearly review of Melbourne 2030, a group of four independent experts were asked by the Minister for Planning to provide advice on strategic and implementation priorities for the next five years. This included identifying where there is a need to refine policy and implementation initiatives to enhance Melbournes liveability.

The AEG has found that there are three essential issues that can and must be resolved for Melbourne 2030 to be successfully implemented:
clarity of responsibility
adequate resources, and
broad-based support.

Come along to the VLGAs Special Issues Forum, to explore these three essential issues. Speakers will include 2 members of the AEG, Rob Moodie and David Whitney. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions and to participate in a lively Panel Discussion.

7pm, Thursday July 17th (Light dinner and networking at 6pm) at the VLGA, 60 Leicester Street, Carlton.
Limited Numbers—RSVP Essential By Monday July 14th to 03 9349 7999 or vlga @vlga.org. au
Please let us know if you will attend the light dinner and/or networking at 6pm and the Special Issues Forum at 7pm!
