During the past two years of rolling lockdowns, we heard that many of us valued living more locally - cherishing the parks and open spaces within 5kms and exploring and finding out more about the hidden gems in our neighbourhood that we might have otherwise missed.

From 18 October to 16 December 2021 we asked what you missed the most, where you couldn’t wait to go and who you couldn’t wait to see. We also wanted to know what you learned during lockdown that you might want to take along with you, and how we might make the CBD neighbourhood the best it could be.

We’re now sharing what we heard during those two months and we’ve identified 28 draft community priorities and ideas for the Melbourne CBD.

在过去几个月的持续封城期间,听说许多人更重视在邻近的生活—珍惜 5 公里内的公园和开放空间,探索发现我们可能会错过的家附近隐藏的更多角落。

从 2021 年 10 月 18 日到 12 月 16 日,我们询问了您最想念的事情、等不及要去的地方以及等不及想见的人。我们还想知道您在封锁期间学到的可能想要随身携带的东西,以及我们如何使墨尔本市中心变得最好。

我们现在正在分享我们在这两个月中听到的内容,我们已经确定了 28 个社区优先事项草案和墨尔本市中心的想法。

Did you know that 67% of CBD residents speak a language other than English at home, and that the most spoken non-English language in the Melbourne CBD is Mandarin Chinese (31%)?

We would like to invite all members of our CBD community, including people who speak various languages, to participate in shaping our neighbourhood.
