Shape Your Southbank will involve the creation of new open space, planting more trees as well as making City Road and other local streets safer and more appealing. Key to these projects is an understanding of what residents, businesses and visitors need to ensure we meet the needs of Southbank’s growing community both now and into the future.

We have identified areas within the precinct that may provide opportunities for new leisure and recreational activities. We will be seeking your feedback on these so we know where to focus our efforts.

Shape Your Southbank builds on the City of Melbourne’s Open Space Strategy, which identifies the need to create more open space for the Southbank community. The projects are underpinned by the Southbank Structure Plan 2010, which seeks to ensure that population growth is well planned and sustainable, helping Southbank become a more accessible and livable neighbourhood.

Engagement for the various projects will take place over the next two years. View the current Shape your Southbank projects, related projects and map below.
