The City of Melbourne has developed a new 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 built form controls; a celebration of character and heritage buildings; creation of a new high street at Spencer Street; and turning ‘grey to green’ by unlocking 10,000m2 of new open space.

We are currently awaiting authorisation from the Minister for Planning. To put in place the recommendations of the Structure Plan, Planning Scheme Amendment C309 will soon be available for exhibition.
