Public forum, City in Crisis?

The Inner Melbourne Planning Alliance (IMPA) presented a public forum titled "City in Crisis?" earlier this evening.

A free event, it was held at the Deakin Edge theatre at Federation Square from 6pm until 7:30pm, consisting of a panel of speakers and a Q&A session.

The questions of concern

  1. What mechanisms will be in place to ensure the design quality and diversity of new residential developments and the associated public spaces that are critical to their success?
  2. To what extent will the proposed plans provide the amenities needed to service high density communities of the future, including schools and hospitals, public transport or jobs for a future smart economy?

The panelists

Geoffrey London
Victorian State Government architect
Leanne Hodyl
Melbourne City Council
Robert Larocca
RP Data
Monique Sasson
Independent Property Analyst
Ashley Williams
Evolve Development

Speaker presentations and audience and panel Q&A were moderated by Peter Mares.
