Modelling urban growth futures within inner metropolitan Melbourne
Esteban, Yolanda and Rollo, John 2013, Modelling urban growth futures within inner metropolitan Melbourne, in Liveable Cities 2013 : Making cities liveable - designing health cities and sustainable communities : Proceedings of the Making Cities Liveable 2013 conference, AST Management, Nerang, Qld., pp. 91-115.
In the light of the Victorian State Government's move towards the development of 'Plan Melbourne' - a new metropolitan planning strategy currently being prepared to take Melbourne forward to 2050 - the following paper attempts to address the issue of how an inner city target of 90,000 new dwellings (Inner Metropolitan Action Plan - IMAP Strategy 5) will impact on existing inner Melbourne activity centres. Working with the prospect of establishing a more compact city within the inner Melbourne region, the paper will focus on key suburbs within the Port Phillip area. Working with a 'Housing Variance Model' based on household structure and dwelling type, the paper will attempt to assess the impact on urban morphology as capacity is progressively altered through a range of built form permutations.
