Several suburbs in Melbourne’s South East have been identified in Plan Melbourne, the Victorian government’s long-term strategy, as key areas for investment, growth and job creation. In fact, there has already been an increased investment focus in the region – the planned Berwick Health and Education Precinct is expected to bring 9,000 jobs to the area.
The Melbourne South East region is highly diverse: at the last census, 30% of residents spoke a language other than English at home. It also has a youthful population – the census showed that there was a higher proportion of pre-schoolers than the average across Greater Melbourne, and a lower proportion of retirees. Many mid-career professionals with children move here to benefit from the family-friendly area with good transport links.
