PROPERTY COUNCIL RELEASES PLAN FOR REBOOTING MELBOURNE
Ahead of the City of
Melbourne Council elections, the Property Council has released an election
platform, Rebooting Melbourne, A Plan for Jobs, Economic Growth and Revitalising the CBD.

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.

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.”

Melbourne Council to boost economic activity, create jobs and build confidence
across the City of Melbourne. These include:
A sensible approach to C270
Promote Melbourne’s economic recovery
Reactivate and revive the Melbourne CBD
Real housing affordability

Ensure Melbourne’s precincts are the best precincts
