The City of Melbourne conducted a preliminary phase of community engagement to inform the development of a structure plan for Lorimer between 25 February and 2 April 2015.

We adopted a 2014-15 Annual Plan and Budget in June 2014, which contained an action to prepare a draft Lorimer Structure Plan for consultation.

From 25 February to 2 April 2015, we completed a first phase of community engagement to inform a future structure plan for Lorimer.

The Minister for Planning announced changes to Fishermans Bend on 17 April 2015. This resulted in the formation of the Fishermans Bend Taskforce, for which the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning is responsible. The Taskforce comprises members from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Metropolitan Planning Authority, Places Victoria, the City of Melbourne and the City of Port Phillip.

The Taskforce is now leading the strategic planning for Fishermans Bend and has been requested to prepare detailed precinct plans for the five precincts in Fishermans Bend. Because of this, the Lorimer Structure Plan will become the Lorimer Neighbourhood Precinct Plan, and will be produced by the Fishermans Bend Taskforce. The Lorimer Neighbourhood Precinct Plan will be informed by the submissions made in the preliminary phase of community engagement undertaken by the City of Melbourne between 25 February and 2 April 2015.
