The Minister for Planning has announced an Amendment to the Victorian Planning Provisions to provide further direction for urban renewal projects.
Amendment VC92 specifically references Fishermans Bend, E-Gate and Richmond Railway Station as areas for mixed use urban renewal.
The change to the State Planning Policy will now put the three areas in the same category as the CBD, Southbank and Docklands.
Amendment VC92 will provide a clear planning framework for major urban renewal projects. This includes over 200 hectares of land at Fishermans Bend and over 20 hectares of former railway yards at E-Gate, Docklands North as well as the smaller urban renewal precinct of Richmond Railway Station.
