Move, Connect, Live

We want to make it easy for people to move, connect and live in our City.

The draft Move, Connect, Live 2018-2028 Strategy has been developed using research, analysis and your community feedback. It establishes how we will respond to the challenges facing our City together to make it easier for people to move around and connect with places in a way that suits them.

The challenge

The City of Port Phillip is growing, with our population expected to increase 25 per cent by 2028. More and more we’re going to feel the effects of this growth on our streets. There will be increased competition for on-street car parks, public transport, spaces for people to socialise and exchange goods.

If we continue to travel the same way we do today, our streets will have to carry an additional 72,000 private car trips and 21,000 additional trips by other transport modes every day.

The strategy

We need to fit more people into the same amount of space without impacting the things we value most. We want a City where residents, workers and visitors have lots of travel choices that support our quality of life, health and wellbeing.

Draft strategy targets

The draft strategy proposes targets for daily trips across the City to be achieved by 2028. For all trips taken per day, we are aiming for:

  • An increase of 36% in walking trips
  • An increase of 151% in bike riding trips
  • An increase of 35% in public transport trips
  • An increase of 0% in private car trips (proportionate to population growth)

Travel choices

You’ve asked us to improve bike lanes, make walking safer and more pleasant and to work with partners to improve public transport services. We’re proposing several actions to address this including the following…

Let us know which action is the most important to you

Improving parking management

Public car parking is a shared and limited resource. Parking policy reform can support a vibrant urban lifestyle and respond to the trade-offs required to achieve this in an increasingly overcrowded road space. We are proposing to revise and update the Parking Permit Policy and create a new Parking Controls Policy (time restrictions and paid parking for Council parking). This is a way for us to ensure street space access is equitable and allow more people to use the same space more often.

New transport options and emerging technology

We have entered a period of rapid transport innovation. Smartphone apps to summon rides, self-driving cars, electric vehicles, car share, GPS-connected public bike share schemes and more are changing the way we manage our mobility needs. Emerging technologies are constantly evolving, and any new long-term strategy needs to be flexible enough to adapt to new innovations and approaches.
