The Cities of Melbourne, Port Phillip, Stonnington, Yarra and Maribyrnong have each set up identically constituted section 86 Special Committees, in accordance with the Local Government Act 1989, to provide a coordinated decision-making process to facilitate the implementation of the Inner Melbourne Action Plan as adopted by member Councils in December 2005 (updated in 2013 with the inclusion of Maribyrnong City Council).

The IMAP Implementation Committee consists of:

  • Cr Nicholas Reece, Chair Future Melbourne (Planning) Committee, City of Melbourne
