The Office for Suburban Development supports direct targeted investments to revitalise areas outside of the eight Suburban Revitalisation sites where the office currently works.

This allows the State Government to partner on projects led by local government, delivering strong outcomes for local communities.

Targeted revitalisation investments are currently being delivered in four suburbs.
