The City of Melbourne prepared Planning Scheme Amendment C173 to enable the development of a sustainability and innovation hub, known as Carlton Connect.
Carlton Connect is to be located on the former Royal Women’s Hospital site– bounded by Swanston, Grattan and Cardigan Streets, Carlton.
The land and the Carlton Connect Initiative are owned by the University of Melbourne and the City of Melbourne has prepared this planning scheme amendment at the university’s request.
The University of Melbourne is seeking to create Australia’s largest sustainability and innovation hub that supports education, research and engagement activities.
Amendment C173 was approved by the Minister for Planning on 15 October 2015.
