In April and May 2015, we worked with the community to develop a draft Urban Forest Precinct Plan for Fishermans Bend. This plan will guide planting in Fishermans Bend streets over the next 10 years.
To develop the draft plan for Fishermans Bend, 45 community members participated in a workshop and a further 37 people shared their ideas on Participate Melbourne.
Through this process, the community created a vision for Fishermans Bend, defined the future character of the urban forest in Fishermans Bend and highlighted areas that should be prioritised for greening. These sections can be found in the draft Fishermans Bend Urban Forest Precinct Plan.
The remainder of the draft plan has been developed in consideration of the existing opportunities and constraints within Fishermans Bend, the strategic context and objectives of the Urban Forest Strategy.
