Melbourne’s urban growth boundary will extend outwards over the next 20 years to incorporate six new fringe suburbs and provide new homes for up to 100,000 people.
The plans, unveiled by Victorian Planning Minister Matthew Guy, includes the development of six new metropolitan suburbs at Diggers Rest, Lockerbie, Lockerbie North, Manor Lakes, Merrifield West and Rockbank North and follow the completion of the Logical Inclusions Review of Melbourne’s Urban Growth Boundary (UGB).
The new suburbs will expand Melbourne’s urban boundary to the North (Mitchell and Whittlesea), to the West (Hume, Melton and Wyndham) and South East (Cardinia and Casey) by 6,000 hectares.Click to enlarge

Plans for the new suburbs include the building of new train station, town centres, open space and other key infrastructure
