The Fishermans Bend Framework will guide investment and development by the State Government, local government, the private sector and not-for-profits.

It is a plan for the parks, schools, roads, transport, community facilities and services to ensure the liveability of the area as it grows over the next 30 years.

The Framework is supported by a suite of evidence-based research reports, strategies and plans on our documents page. A factsheet with an overview of the Framework can be found here.

A set of planning controls (Amendment GC81) accompany the Framework to provide detailed planning guidance for new development.

A Standing Advisory Committee has been established to assess the 26 projects called in by the Minister for Planning in February 2018. This committee was appointed to consider and provide advice on proposals for site-specific planning controls within the Melbourne and Port Phillip Planning Schemes, to facilitate redevelopment within the Fishermans Bend Precinct.

The Fishermans Bend Planning Review Panel conducted public hearings from 1 March to 22 June 2018 and provided a report to the Minister for Planning. This report is available at our documents page.

A public engagement report summarizing feedback from consultation during October to December 2017 on the draft Fishermans Bend Framework and planning controls is attached below.
