Melbournes New Suburbs

Melbournes New Suburbs

100,000 lots created by end 2018 with view of creating new affordable housing which is desperately required.

Treasurer Tim Pallas said the release of housing lots would help “make housing more affordable”.

“This increase in supply is also a boost to the construction industry, creating jobs in the growth corridors, as well as in established suburbs,” he said.


New Suburbs:

  • North of Melbourne: Lindum Vale, Beveridge North West, Beveridge Central, Donnybrook and Woodstock, Wollert, Northern Quarries
  • North-west of Melbourne: Lancefield Rd Sunbury, Sunbury South
  • South-east of Melbourne: Minta Farm, Pakenham East, McPherson
  • West of Melbourne: Quandong, Tarneit Plains, Kororoit, Mt Atkinson, Plumpton

The required Construction of housing for new suburbs is a developer’s dream indeed but at a cost. Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC) estimated to be $115m for just Donnybrook and Woodstock across Melbourne’s North.
