WELCOME TO GROWTH AREAS AUTHORITY
The Growth Areas Authority is an independent statutory body with a broad, facilitative role to help create greater certainty, faster decisions and better coordination for all parties involved in planning and development of Melbourne’s growth areas. We report directly to the Minister for Planning.
The goals of the Growth Areas Authority are to:
- Develop communities in growth areas that are socially, environmentally and economically sustainable.
- Work with industry and local Councils to ensure economic, transport, employment and housing priorities are achieved in Melbourne’s seven growth areas.
- Improve the operation of regulatory and administrative processes over time to reduce costs and increase efficiencies for developers and local Councils.
The Growth Areas Authority was established in 2006 and works in partnership with local Councils, developers and the Victorian Government to help create sustainable, well serviced communities.
