Melbourne's outer suburbs deserve better

Published on 13 November 2017


The 1.6 million people represented by Victoria's Interface Councils, which includes Yarra Ranges Council, should have access to adequate public transport, local jobs, education, health and community services, community facilities and uncongested roads. 

Recent analysis conducted by Interface Councils has identified concerning statistics that demonstrate the impact of inadequate access to crucial components of liveability. This includes a significant disparity in the access that residents living in Melbourne’s outer suburbs have to jobs, services, education and other opportunities, compared to the rest of Melbourne.

This needs to change.

That’s why Interface Councils is embarking on The Liveability Project. A campaign that calls for all sides of Victorian politics to do their part to ensure Melbourne’s outer suburbs are liveable for all.

A key question is: “What do you as a resident feel needs to change to let you get on and live your life the way you want to?”

Interface Councils want to hear from you.

Tell us what you think will make your neighbourhood and community more liveable. 

With your input, we can work towards making Yarra Ranges an even better place to live, work, learn and play by taking part in the survey.
