Fishermans Bend is Australia’s largest urban renewal project covering approximately 485 hectares in the heart of Melbourne. Fishermans Bend will consist of five precincts across two municipalities – the City of Melbourne and the City of Port Phillip – and connect Melbourne's CBD to the bay.
It is expected that by 2050, it will be home to approximately 80,000 residents and provide employment for up to 60,000 people.
The planning for Fishermans Bend is being led by the Fishermans Bend Taskforce, comprising members from Development Victoria, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, and the Cities of Melbourne and Port Phillip. An independent Ministerial Advisory Committee has been established to advise the Minister for Planning on Fishermans Bend.
