VicUrban Becomes Places Victoria

The Victorian Government has re-branded 'VicUrban' to 'Places Victoria'. 

You can read the press release here.

And check out the Places Victoria website here.

So this is apparently the Urban Renewal Authority that the government was promising.

According to the press release Mr Guy says: "It is essential we strive to improve liveability and continue a focus on building sustainable new communities which is what Places Victoria's mandate is."


"The focus of Victoria's new pre-eminent urban renewal authority on liveability and place making is an important step in ensuring Melbourne and Victoria is liveable and sustainable for the long term."

The press release says 'liveability' four times, 'renewal' six times and 'sustainable' only twice - it's a whole new direction!
