Sustainable in 2030? The impact of population growth in Melbourne`s inner activity centres
Esteban, Yolanda and Rollo, John 2005, Sustainable in 2030? The impact of population growth in Melbourne`s inner activity centres, in Fabricating sustainability : unofficial proceedings of the 39th Annual Architectural Association Conference, School of Architecture + Design, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, N.Z., pp. 1-8.
The advent of sustainable approaches to managing an increase of population in our urban centres, such as the Melbourne 2030 planning policy, has led to questions regarding their successful implementation at local government level. Issues relating to the location of sustainable built form and infrastructure are of particular importance considering Melbourne 2030's direction regarding intensification around existing activity nodes. The following paper embarks on an investigation into the impact of the projected population growth set out in the 2030 policy, focusing particularly on the consequent implications of increased residential densities in and around activity centres within the inner Melbourne region. Utilising various mapping techniques, a series of comparative built form/density scenarios will be generated that begin to explore the issues of implementation faced at a local government level.
