Discussion paper

Victoria's future state: why decentralisation should be our priority

Paper prepared for the Balance Victoria online initiative
Population density Population forecasting Regional planning Land use Transport Population Population growth Sustainable urban growth Victoria

In this inaugural discussion paper, former Victorian Premier, Steve Bracks, and former Victorian Deputy Premier, Pat McNamara, discuss the four policy pillars of a future population decentralisation agenda for Victoria.

The four pillars discussed are:

  • A decentralisation program must set clear targets
  • Areas across the entire state, not just the large regional centres must be included
  • Transport and land use planning must be better integrated across the state
  • The private sector must be more involved in the financing and delivery of infrastructure needed to support a structured decentralisation program
