I was just having a shower and thinking of how Melbourne is growing and I think I came up with a new word. Huburb to describe a major hub suburb.  The ones where all the trains and trams meet and there are cinemas and shopping centres. 

I was thinking of Camberwell and Box Hill when it came to me. The “huburbs” that have failed to materialize from Steve Brack’s Melbourne 2030.

So that’s my new word. I’ll think I’ll send the word to Justin Madden the current planning minister for Victoria.
