Plan for Rebooting Melbourne

Ahead of the City of
Melbourne Council elections, the Property Council has released an election
platform, Rebooting Melbourne, APlan for Jobs, Economic Growth and Revitalising the CBD .

In an election year unlike any other, the Property
Council has urged candidates to consider a range of recommendations aimed at
boosting economic activity, creating jobs and building and restoring confidence
across the municipality.

“The unique and vibrant City of Melbourne has been
hard hit by COVID-19. Whoever is elected Lord Mayor will need to work
collaboratively with the State Government and industry to reinvigorate the CBD,”
said Ms Wall.

“Melbourne has long been a beacon of innovation, prosperity,
and growth. A unified vision for the future of Melbourne’s CBD must be shared
among future leaders of the city’s council.”

The
election platform identifies eight recommendations for an incoming City of
Melbourne Council to boost economic activity, create jobs and build confidence
across the City of Melbourne. These include:

  1. A sensible approach to C270

  2. Promote Melbourne’s economic recovery

  3. Reactivate and revive the Melbourne CBD

  4. Real housing affordability

  5. Consider planning incentives to promote development

  6. Ensure Melbourne’s precincts are the best precincts

  7. Encourage
    investment in Victoria

  8. Leadership,
    accountability and a shared vision

The plan complements the Property Council Stimulus
Plan for Economic Recovery
released
in June and the Principles
of Successful Precincts
