Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 released

The Heart Foundation welcomes the release of the Victorian State Government’s metropolitan planning strategy Plan Melbourne 2017-2050.

Throughout 2016, the Heart Foundation, with the support of the Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Planning, worked with a range of stakeholders from right across government. Through a series of workshops, this group of dedicated professionals worked to define the 20 minute neighbourhood inclusive of the hallmarks that must be present for neighbourhoods to work well and provide outcomes for health and wellbeing.

On release of Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 we were delighted to see that these hallmarks had been fully incorporated into the plan under Outcome 5. “Melbourne is a city of inclusive, vibrant and healthy neighbourhoods”
