Future South Melbourne

South Melbourne is a vibrant inner urban location with an engaged community, a diverse mix of housing and businesses, and a rich cultural and architectural heritage. These attributes, as well as its location between Melbourne’s CBD and Port Phillip Bay, mean that South Melbourne will continue to be an attractive location to live, work and play.

We are starting work on a new structure plan for South Melbourne to manage change and guide how the area looks, feels and functions. This long-term plan will help prepare South Melbourne for the future and how we respond to challenges such as climate change, population growth and COVID-19.

How can I get involved?

We want your ideas and aspirations for South Melbourne and its future. You can share them by visiting our Have Your Say page for Future South Melbourne. Feedback closes on Wednesday 21 April 2021.

The structure plan will take approximately three years to develop. There will be a number of opportunities for you to contribute your feedback throughout the plan’s development. Visit the Have Your Say page to register for project updates.
