    Update on Fishermans Bend Redevelopment

    A recent City of Port Phillip (CoPP) Community Forum provided an opportunity for community groups to hear the latest news about the redevelopment. Since the release of the Fishermans Bend Vision last October the Fishermans Bend Taskforce has been working on the Fishermans Bend Framework. The Framework is designed to guide planning and will include the strategies for transport infrastructure (road, rail, trams, and road network), community infrastructure, public space, and density. The Framework will be released as a draft for community comment in the first quarter of 2017.

    A groundwater study by the Environment Protection Authority found contaminants across the area. More details can be found at: www.epa.vic.gov.au/fishermansbend#Challenges. So far 6,422 residential dwellings have been approved with permit applications for a further 6,032 dwellings. There have been no applications for commercial developments.
