Fishermans Bend is Australia’s largest urban renewal project covering approximately 480 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 80,000 people.
The draft Fishermans Bend Framework has been released for public consultation and a series of events are planned.
The planning for Fishermans Bend is being led by the Fishermans Bend Taskforce, comprising members from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, the Cities of Melbourne and Port Phillip, and Development Victoria. An independent Ministerial Advisory Committee has been established to advise the Minister for Planning on Fishermans Bend.
