NORTH Link strongly supports and welcomes the Federal Government’s announcement that it has committed to a North West Melbourne City Deal.
The announcement comes as a direct result of ongoing advocacy by NORTH Link and its regional partners including the seven councils in Melbourne’s North for a City Deal commitment from the Federal Government.
‘Melbourne’s North is growing and transforming. Our community comprises 1 million people and will expand to 1.3 million people by 2031. A City Deal is a unique opportunity for the three levels of government to work together with all regional stakeholders to unlock the region’s full potential and deal with critical needs,’ said acting Executive Director of NORTH Link, Tony Coppola.
‘It will enable the region to improve transport connectivity; generate jobs and business growth; improve provision of affordable housing; and build resilient communities.’
‘Melbourne’s North is growing at a rapid pace so continued investment from all levels of government is vital to the future of the region,’ Mr Coppola said.
