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 Fishermans Bend Framework is now released, providing a plan for parks, schools, roads, transport and community facilities and services to ensure the livability of the precinct as it grows over the next 30 years. The Framework is supported by a suite of evidence-based research reports, strategies and plans.

More information about the Framework along with a detailed version can be found here.

The Fishermans Bend Development Board has been established to guide the planning and development of this landmark project for Melbourne and is supported by the Fishermans Bend Taskforce, comprising members from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, the City of Melbourne, the City of Port Phillip, and Development Victoria.
