Melbourne’s Multiple CBD Proposal on The Grapevine
Anybody with half a clue knows Melbourne is growing quickly. So much so it now ranks next to cities in India, Colombia and China as one of the fastest growing cities in the world. One solution to help the city deal with population growth and maintain liveability is decentralisation. The Victorian Planning Authority is working towards developing seven mini-CBDs across greater Melbourne as a means to alleviate pressure on the existing urban centre. But is this actually feasible or just another Elon-Musk-type pipe dream? Urban planning expert Dave Nichols joins Kulja on The Grapevine to weigh in on this proposal and whether such planning is even necessary.
