The Inner Melbourne Action Plan (IMAP) is a collaborative partnership between the Cities of Melbourne, Port Phillip, Stonnington, Yarra and Maribyrnong.

These inner Melbourne Councils work together to strengthen the liveability, attraction and prosperity of the region.

Responding to the demands of Melbourne 2030, the State Government's blueprint for managing sustainable growth and change across metropolitan Melbourne, IMAP aims to ‘Make Melbourne More Liveable' by implementing a series of strategies and actions including:

  • Linking and improving transport routes;
  • Minimising traffic congestion and increasing public transport use;
  • Supporting planned residential growth and housing choice;
  • Developing the distinctive activity centres, encouraging business investment and tourism; and
  • Linking regional open space.

The Action Plan guides a collaborative and consistent approach to the future growth, development and enhancement of inner Melbourne.

For information on the progress of the IMAP Strategies, view the Progress Reports.
