V2 (DSSSP) is to provide a strate- gic approach for managing future development on Swan Street and the surrounding study area.

Melbourne City Council and councils covering transport hubs such as Box Bill, Dandenong and Frankston have joined forces to promote multi-storey apartment blocks in train and tram corridors. Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said yesterday it was a viable alternative to outer suburban sprawl. "We have all signed it saying that we all, as a policy position, encourage that greater intensification of development for six-storey development along transport corridors because that’s the way we see population being accommodated using infrastructure better, but not detracting from the liveability of the city," he said. "We’ve got to get used to it it’s not for everybody but it’s why you are starting to see greater residential development occurring along transport corridors and central activity districts." One of the first acts of the Baillieu Government was to dump Labor’s policy of facilitating such development along transport routes. Planning Minister Matthew Guy said: "It shouldn’t be open slather along those corridors. Opening the city up as a construction site will cost us our hveability. We need to manage population growth and also manage our liveability." With Melbourne’s population tipped to increase by more than 30 per cent by 2031, Mr Guy said the Government wanted several options to accommodate growth "in and around the CBD, in activities areas, in our growth areas and in regional areas". Opposition planning spokesman Brian Tee said the Government had a hidden agenda to dump housing development in certain suburbs and streets.
