But an ongoing debate questions whether the North-West corridor will be the leader of the boom, or if the Eastern suburbs will move to accommodate unprecedented growth rates. The recent VPELA seminar, ‘The Future Growth of Melbourne – East or West?’ addressed the finer points of this debate and provided the town planners in attendance with key insights into current growth patterns.

The VPELA Future Growth Seminar had many town planners taking note of Melbourne’s potential development patterns.

The Australian Formula 1® Grand Prix is one of the most well-known and highly anticipated events of the Melbourne sporting calendar, with thousands of avid race-goers descending upon the otherwise quiet and tranquil Albert Park parkland for that one electrifying weekend in March.
