The Victorian Planning Authority proudly acknowledges Victoria’s Aboriginal community and their rich culture and pays respect to their Elders past and present.

We acknowledge Aboriginal people as Australia’s first peoples and as the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land and water on which we rely.

We recognise and value the ongoing contribution of Aboriginal people and communities to Victorian life and how this enriches us.

We embrace the spirit of reconciliation, working towards the equality of outcomes and ensuring an equal voice.

Futures Thinking Research Quarterly, June 2022

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– June 2022’ monitors the key demographic, economic and research trends across metropolitan Melbourne and Regional Victoria.

In this Research Quarterly

The property market appears to be moderating following a period of high activity levels, however the alignment and delivery of planning activities, infrastructure co-ordination and development remains a challenge across Government and the development industry following a period of prolonged peak demand.

In this Research Quarterly we cover:

  • Victorian growth and economic overview
  • Construction activity
  • Regional growth
