This research was commissioned by the Municipal Association of Victoria who wished to better understand the impact of population growth in Greater Melbourne on local government. The research modelled the impact of growth for each LGA in relation to productivity, transport congestion and social outcomes, documenting the cost of recovering the infrastructure lags to prevent further growing inequality in the six LGA areas where the growth had the greatest adverse impact. Description and quantification of the impact of population growth, where infrastructure development has not kept pace, has not been calculated before.
