Melbourne's Growth Corridor Plans and Biodiversity Strategies Briefing and Panel Discussion

The recently released Growth Corridor Plans are high level integrated land use and transport plans that provide a strategy for the development of Melbourne's growth corridors over the coming decades. These plans identify areas for housing, jobs, transport, town centres, open space and key infrastructure for Melbourne's newest suburbs. The public and profession have been invited to comment on the draft Growth Corridor Plans.

Each of the members of the panel will speak for approximately 10 – 15 minutes about their topic expertise and then participate in a panel Q/A discussion with the audience.

Light refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the seminar.
