Melbourne has had the fastest-growing population of any Australian capital city for more than a decade. With an estimated 1.6 million additional homes needed by 2050, policy makers need to address current and emerging issues of amenity, function, productive capacity and social cohesion today. Planning Melbourne reflects on planning since the post-war era, but focuses in particular on the past two decades and the ways that key government policies and influential individuals and groups have shaped the city during this time.
