To help us plan for a growing Victoria, the VPA regularly analyses the external economic and property market factors influencing urban planning.
Monitoring current trends and the external environment ensures our planning activities reflect and adapt to community needs. The VPA Research Quarterly– January 2023 monitors the key demographic, economic and research trends across metropolitan Melbourne and Regional Victoria.
In this Research Quarterly
Victoria’s economy and housing markets have been assisted by a return to net positive population growth (annual) in the first half of 2022 following five consecutive quarters of population decline. The turnaround has been largely driven in established Melbourne, which lost significant population in the year prior.
In this Research Quarterly we cover:
- Population and dwelling growth
- Land and housing markets
- Victorian economic overview
