Victoria's 30-Year Infrastructure Strategy

Jonathan Spear
Executive Director
Infrastructure Victoria, Melbourne

This presentation provided an overview of the State of Victoria's 30-year Infrastructure Strategy, with an emphasis on its implications for people, density and infrastructure. The process of developing the Strategy in a consultative, evidence-based and transparent manner was outlined, and the key recommendations regarding synergies between infrastructure and density were explored. The presentation explained opportunities for integration between infrastructure and land use planning, in particular connections between Plan Melbourne and the 30-year Infrastructure Strategy. A central goal of this significant planning effort was the identifying specific opportunities to achieve measurable social, economic and environmental outcomes.
