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:

  • As the development of the Mt Atkinson PSP commences in the 2021-2026 period, gains of young couples and young families aged 20-39 with children aged 0-9 years will be attracted to new housing opportunities
  • With the increased growth of the Mt Atkinson PSP area after 2020, the gains of persons in abovementioned age groups, along with gains of mature adults and early retirees will occur
  • Minimal changes to persons in older age groups aged 70+ years
