The vision recognises the 485-hectare area near Melbourne's CBD as an opportunity to set new benchmarks for inner city urban renewal, best practice sustainability outcomes and most importantly, align with the refresh of Plan Melbourne - our city's blueprint for growth and sustainability to 2050 - across the areas of transport, building resilience to climate change, housing supply, diversity and choice and sustainability and energy efficiency measures.

New benchmarks for urban renewal

The vision sets new benchmarks for inner city urban renewal, in respect to economic prosperity, sustainability, design, smart urban management, community service provision, as well as active and public transport.

These benchmarks are:

  • Open space within 200 metres walking  distance for all residents and workers.
  • Primary and secondary schools  across Fishermans Bend.
  • At least one activity centre in each precinct including retail, jobs and community services.
  • A target for 80 per cent of transport movements to be made by public transport, walking or cycling.
  • Diverse and affordable housing opportunities.
  • An integrated transport strategy including cycle paths, tram lines and an underground rail line.
  • Delivery of catalyst projects – the Ferrars Street Education and Community Precinct  is just the first of these to be rolled out.
