The City of Melbourne has developed a West Melbourne Structure Plan, endorsed by the Future Melbourne Committee in February 2018.

West Melbourne is a long-established area with a strong community, diverse mix of housing, warehouses and businesses, and a rich cultural and architectural heritage. The new structure plan guides the development of future growth in West Melbourne.

The plan outlines:

  • tailored planning controls to protect character and heritage buildings
  • creation of a new high street at Spencer Street
  • unlocking 10,000m2 of new open space.

Melbourne Planning Scheme Amendment C309, which implements the West Melbourne Structure Plan by introducing new tailored planning controls in the Planning Scheme, is on public exhibition until 4 February 2019.
