This article explores the growing independence of the inner city and suburban areas in Melbourne. It shows that the former is specialising in ‘new economy’ employment while the latter are becoming increasingly diversified in employment terms. Most Melbourne residents live and work in suburban locations. The current Victorian Government planning document, Melbourne 2030, seeks to locate suburban job growth in ‘activity’ centres close to public transport. The analysis of job creation in suburban areas in this paper suggests that this goal is unlikely to be achieved. Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
