How has the Framework been developed?

A number of studies and expert reports supported the development of the Framework. These include:

Integrated Transport Plan

The successful delivery of transport infrastructure will be one of the key components to delivering a liveable, well-connected community in Fishermans Bend.

The Fishermans Bend Taskforce has commissioned a range of transport studies that will feed into an overall Integrated Transport Plan for the area.

This means that transport modelling will be undertaken for different travel methods, as well as developing road and street alignments for preferred methods of transport (such as public transport, cycling, walking and vehicles).

Additional studies are also looking at river crossings, car parking and water transport options.

Green Star - Communities

The Fishermans Bend Taskforce is aligning the planning framework for Fishermans Bend with the principles and credits of Green Star - Communities. Planning for Fishermans Bend will address the Green Star - Communities categories of governance, liveability, economic prosperity, environment and innovation.

A Public Space Strategy

An overarching public space strategy will provide an indicative plan for public space to cater for a range of community experiences. It will also identify funding models for public space and investigate potential opportunities for delivering additional open space in Fishermans Bend.

A Community Infrastructure Plan

The Fishermans Bend Taskforce is identifying the future community facilities and services for residents and workers that will be required as the Fishermans Bend population grows.

Smart City and Integrated Infrastructure Strategies

An integrated infrastructure plan is being developed that will look at opportunities to embed smart city thinking into the design and operation of infrastructure to manage utilities and resources more efficiently and support increased resilience.

Aboriginal and Historic Cultural Heritage

A study is being undertaken to identify and understand traditional historical and contemporary cultural values and meaning held by Aboriginal people and the ways in which these values can be interpreted in a meaningful and practical way.

An additional study is underway to understand Historic Cultural Heritage in Fishermans Bend.
