Covering 90 hectares within North Melbourne and Kensington, the Macaulay precinct will transform into a thriving home and workplace for our growing community.

The Macaulay Structure Plan 2021 sets the vision for Macaulay as a mixed-use, mid-rise precinct within North Melbourne and Kensington. It will become a thriving home and workplace for our growing community.

The final structure plan has been informed by feedback we heard during two phases of consultation on the 2019 Discussion Paper (PDF 15.18 MB) and 2020 Draft Structure Plan (PDF 16.9 MB).

The Macaulay Structure Plan 2021 was endorsed with changes by the Future Melbourne Committee on Tuesday 9 November 2021.

These updates have been made and the Structure Plan is available here:
