Southbank and South Wharf have an important industrial and manufacturing history dating back to the mid-1800s, which is reflected in the surviving built form. To protect the remaining heritage places, the City of Melbourne has prepared Planning Scheme Amendment C305.

Amendment C305 implements the recommendations of the Southbank Heritage Review 2017, updated November 2020 by Biosis.
