Fishermans Bend is Australia’s largest urban renewal project and is a vital component of accommodating Melbourne’s growth.

Amendment GC81 to the Melbourne and Port Phillip Planning Schemes, which was the subject of an Advisory Committee process, introduced a suite of permanent planning controls to the Fishermans Bend Precinct.

The Minister for Planning has appointed a Standing Advisory Committee to consider proposals for site-specific planning controls for:

  • land subject to permit applications called-in by the Minister for Planning prior to the approval of Amendment GC81
  • land subject to a proposal for use and development in Fishermans Bend.
