The Inner South-east Partnership is one of six Metropolitan Partnerships established by the Victorian Government, recognising that local communities are in the best position to understand the challenges and opportunities faced by their region.

The Inner South-east Partnership’s vision is for a region that is liveable, equitable and agile. Following engagement with its community throughout 2018, the Partnership has developed its advice to the Victorian Government on the regional priorities for the Inner South-east region.

The Partnership's advice to the Victorian Government for 2018 included:

Health & Wellbeing - new 2018 priority with a focus on reducing loneliness & social isolation

Economy, Industry & Jobs - encourage opportunities to work close to home, supporting a vibrant local economy, place and community

Transport Connectivity - improve the safety and reliability of movement in the region to better connect people via different transport modes

Affordable & Social Housing - focus on the region’s key workforce and future housing needs to support the growing community and economy

Open Space - deliver inclusive, vibrant and healthy neighbourhoods through accessible, high quality open spaces, with a particular focus on access to sporting infrastructure

Environmental Sustainability - new 2018 priority to support environmental resilience & sustainability by adapting to climate change and transitioning to a low-carbon city

What we heard in 2018

At our second annual Assembly on 30 May 2018 at McKinnon Secondary College, we heard directly from the community about how to further progress priorities for the region.
