Background

Fishermans Bend is Australia’s largest urban renewal project, covering approximately 480 hectares in the heart of Melbourne. It will consist of five precincts across two municipalities – the City of Melbourne and the City of Port Phillip.

Draft planning scheme amendment GC81 seeks to introduce planning scheme controls in the Melbourne and Port Phillip planning schemes to support the implementation of the draft Fishermans Bend Framework.

The Minister for Planning has appointed the Fishermans Bend Planning Review Panel to report on the appropriateness of draft Planning Scheme Amendment GC81.
