Activity centres are vibrant places where people shop, work, connect with family and friends as well as live.
They range in size, from local neighbourhood shopping strips to centres that include universities and major regional shopping malls.
They’re also great locations for new homes.
As part of Victoria’s Housing Statement, we are working with the Department of Transport and Planning to deliver more homes close to services, jobs, and transport in 10 activity centres across Melbourne.
Working with local councils and community, the program will enable the delivery of an estimated 60,000 homes through a review of building heights and design requirements, and changes to existing rules to support appropriate development.
The program is one way the Victorian Government is working to deliver more homes in the right locations to improve housing affordability and increasing housing choice.
