City of Melton

Net migration by age

The age group with the highest net migration in the City of Melton is 25-29 year olds, this is forecast to occur in the period between 2026 to 2031.

Migration is one of the most important components of population change. Once you have established the amount of development activity in an area, the next step is to make assumptions about who will move into the area as well as who is leaving the area.

Net migration by age is an excellent way of understanding housing markets. The most mobile age groups in the population are young adults. They tend to move to attend educational institutions, seek work and express a change in lifestyle. Market research has shown that empty nesters are more likely to move to smaller accommodation when appropriate and affordable alternative housing is supplied in the local area that is accessible to established social networks.

Select each small area to see how migration patterns differ for each area across City of Melton depending on their housing markets and stage in the suburb life cycle.

Major migration assumptions:

  • Relatively stable and similar migration profile expected across the 2016-2031 period
  • Substantial new housing opportunities across the City, especially in the Cobblebank - Strathtulloh, Fraser Rise, Deanside,Rockbank, Rockbank South, Bonnie Brook, Grangefields and the Mt Atkinson PSP section of Southern Rural/Mt Atkinson, all which are expected to attract predominantly young couples as well as young and maturing families
  • Strong migration gain to the City of Melton is expected throughout the 2016-2051 period
