Fishermans Bend will consist of five distinct precincts – Lorimer, Employment, Wirraway, Montague and Sandridge – across both the City of Melbourne and City of Port Phillip. It is expected to be home to approximately 80,000 residents and provide employment for up to 80,000 people by 2050.

The draft Fishermans Bend framework was released on 21 October 2017 by the Victorian Government and outlines the future direction of development across the area. Consultation on the draft framework is being led by the Fishermans Bend Taskforce and will close on Friday 15 December.

City of Melbourne encourages the community to take part in engagement opportunities being led by the Fishermans Bend Taskforce during this consultation period.

We have developed a response to the draft framework which was endorsed at the City of Melbourne’s Council Meeting on Tuesday 12 December.

City of Melbourne has previously provided comments on the Fishermans Bend Vision (published in 2016) and Interim Design Guidelines which has informed the development of the Draft Framework.
