Suburbia may seem static from the outside, regressive even. In reality it is in perpetual motion – shooting tendrils ever further into the grasslands and paddocks surrounding Melbourne, as well as constantly regenerating itself from the inside out. As Moreland City Council continues its limping march to the staccato beat of urban renewal, “The Coburg Plan” quietly catalogues some of the suburb’s past lives.
