Kew

Residential development

Residential development forecasts assume the number of dwellings in Kew will increase by an average of 125 dwellings per annum to 13,499 in 2041.

The addition of dwellings to the housing stock is a major driver of population growth in an area, providing opportunities for households to relocate from other areas or new households to form locally (such as young people leaving the family home or separations/divorces).

Residential development can take various forms depending on the availability of land. These include new housing estates on greenfield sites, subdivision in existing residential neighbourhoods (often called infill development), conversion of industrial lands to residential lands, and densification of housing by building up.

.id's forecasters worked with Council planners to understand the likely development activity in each small area. This forms the development assumptions for the forecasts. This table shows the quantity of new development assumed in each small area in the City of Boroondara. Select each small area to see detailed assumptions.

Forecast land assumptions :

  • Dwelling counts for the period 2011 to 2016 have been adjusted to reflect Census results.

    • Future development assumptions are based on current building and planning applications from Council, as well as a range of mooted sites and differential rates of infill development across areas
