The Arden and Macaulay urban renewal areas are located approximately two kilometres north-west of the central city, with industrial segments in North Melbourne and Kensington.

In 2012 the Arden-Macaulay Structure Plan (PDF 47.11 MB) was released by City of Melbourne, identifying areas that will transition into sustainable living and working environments over the next 30 years. In 2016, Arden and Macaulay were separated into two projects, due to changes in the planning context.

City of Melbourne is leading the planning of Macaulay and we are in the process of creating a refreshed structure plan for the area.

City of Melbourne and the Victorian Planning Authority are co-leading the planning for the Arden Urban Renewal Precinct in partnership with other government departments and agencies.
