The City of Melton is a rapidly growing community that is diverse, ambitious and bold in its vision for the future. We are developing a city that is both economically and environmentally sustainable, and a place people aspire to live, work and raise a family.

The City of Melton is Australia’s fastest growing municipality, in the year to 30 June 2022 our population grew by 11,642 people, or 6.42 per cent, as every week 76 babies were born and 72 families moved in. This growth is not slowing down, with the population set to grow to nearly 500,000 people over the next 30 years.

We welcome the significant transformational projects committed by the Australian and Victorian governments including the new Melton Hospital, level crossing removals, upgrade to the Melton line, new schools, TAFE, the Western Highway business case, the Western Intermodal Freight Terminal and Outer Metropolitan Ring (Rail) South.

However, there is still much more to do for our growing community to provide equity and liveability.

We have listened to our community and represent their ambitions for jobs, transport, health, education, and sustainability. Considered planning and strong, strategic partnerships guide our advocacy priorities.

The City of Melton’s Advocacy Priorities booklet(PDF, 10MB) outlines the critical investments, and we call on State and Federal Governments to support the City of Melton as it manages unprecedented growth.
