Can metropolitan regionalisation help us to prosper?

A multi-centered Melbourne has been a long-term urban planning objective that promises to bring people closer to work opportunities, public transport, and important local infrastructure. But are we getting any closer to this noble goal?

This event will look at the quest for metropolitan regionalisation through the lens of Dandenong, one of our most dynamic and multicultural urban centres, where various new developments and government offices have spurred a much discussed (and occasionally maligned) urban renewal process.

Creating a more multi-centred Melbourne could potentially contribute to major public policy objectives right across government. This ground-breaking event will help you understand what is happening now, what has happened in the past, and what the long-term benefits of metropolitan regionalisation could be.

1.30pm-3.15pm: Session part one
