One Melbourne or Two? Implications of Population Growth for Infrastructure and Services in Interface Areas
Prepared for Interface Councils by Essential Economics Pty Ltd
The key purpose of this study is to identify long‐term infrastructure and service requirements for the Interface Councils, together with their associated costs, that will deliver liveability standards for Interface residents comparable to residents living in non-‐Interface metropolitan areas.
The Interface Councils of Melbourne form an arc around metropolitan Melbourne and incorporate both the green wedge and the urban growth boundary. The ten Interface Councils include: Cardinia, Casey, Hume, Melton, Mitchell, Mornington Peninsula, Nillumbik, Whittlesea, Wyndham and Yarra Ranges. These municipalities represent only 10 of metropolitan Melbourne’s 31 municipalities and yet are expected to accommodate over 60% of Melbourne’s population growth to 2026.
