In April, we worked with the community to develop a draft Urban Forest Precinct Plan for Southbank. This plan will guide planting in Southbank streets over the next 10 years.
To develop the draft plan for Southbank, 90 community members participated in a workshop and a further 50 people shared their ideas on Participate Melbourne.
Through this process, the community created a vision for Southbank, defined the future character of the urban forest in Southbank and highlighted areas that should be prioritised for greening. These sections can be found in the document.
The remainder of the draft Precinct Plan document has been developed in consideration of the existing opportunities and constraints within Southbank, the strategic context and objectives of the Urban Forest Strategy.
