The City of Moreland is located

between 4 and 14 kilometres

north of central Melbourne

and covers the inner and mid-

northern suburbs of Brunswick,

Brunswick East, Brunswick

Vale South, Coburg, Coburg

North, Hadfield, Fawkner,

Glenroy, Oak Park and

Gowanbrae. Small sections

of Fitzroy North and Tullamarine

Our population remained steady

at around 136,000 between

1996 and 2001. Since 2001, it

has increased by approximately

27,500 or 20 per cent

1

. In June

2015, our estimated resident

population was 166,770.

Between 2011 and 2036

it is predicted we will see

unprecedented population

growth. The municipality is

going to grow by 39 per cent –

from a population of 154,245 in

2011 to 214,320 in 2036. The

majority of the growth will occur

by 2021 with the Brunswick

Statistical Local Area predicted

to become Moreland’s most

populous area, overtaking the

Coburg Statistical Local Area.

Births

We have seen a dramatic

increase in births, with more

than 2,000 babies born in

Moreland each year since 2005.

In this financial year, 2,694

babies were born in Moreland.

This is a 16.7 per cent increase

since the 2008–09 financial

year, and a 41.6 per cent

increase since 2000–01.

This is approximately double

the proportional increase for

the total population.

We have seen a

dramatic increase in

births, with more than

2,000 babies born in

Moreland each year

since 2005.
