Abstract In the next 20 - 30 years the City of Whittlesea is expected to grow in population from 162,000 to, potentially, over 300,000: effectively doubling its population in a fraction of the time it took to reach current levels. Creating a sense of place in the city's vast urban hinterland will be vital to the health, well-being and feeling of worth for its future residents. Apart from the typical challenges of providing physical infrastructure such as public transport, roads and utilities is the significant challenge of providing an appropriate social infrastructure for its community members.
