We are refreshing the structure plan for Macaulay, a precinct that incorporates parts of North Melbourne and Kensington, and want to hear from current and future residents and businesses in the area.

Our 2012 Arden-Macaulay Structure Plan (PDF 47.11 MB) established a vision for a mid-rise, mixed use neighbourhood with sustainable transport, new open spaces and community facilities.

We want to ensure that future growth and development in Macaulay delivers this vision and responds to changes in the planning context.

As a result, we've developed a discussion paper that outlines our proposals for Macaulay, which will help us prepare a refreshed structure plan.

Tell us what you think about:

  • urban design and planning
  • open space and community facilities
  • sustainable transport options.

Learn more by reading the discussion paper overview, and share your feedback in the online survey or by attending one of our pop-up engagement sessions.

Consultation closes Thursday 19 December.
