Docklands - the next decade

02 Oct 2009

The Docklands community will be invited to input into a new plan for the second decade of Docklands, through a process endorsed this month by the Docklands Co-ordination Committee.

Over the next nine months, VicUrban and the City of Melbourne will work together with the community, stakeholders and industry leaders, including its critics, to develop a plan to guide development as Docklands enters its second decade.

“When developing Docklands 10 years ago, we had a clear idea as to what was needed to attract the necessary investment and momentum required to start developing a world-class destination capable of supporting a strong local community,” VicUrban CEO Pru Sanderson said.

“Now that the community is here, we want to ensure it has a say on how best to fulfil the Docklands vision and, in turn, help to ensure that Melbourne continues to be one of the world’s most liveable cities.”

A report is currently being prepared on the first decade of Docklands to provide the community with information on what has been developed to date, which will inform a broader discussion on what is needed over the next decade.

The City of Melbourne and VicUrban will organise a program of activities to obtain the views, ideas and aspirations of the many stakeholders with an interest in Docklands.  Developers, small and large businesses, the design industry, young people and key industry bodies will all be targeted in the consultation process.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the priority was to identify what was missing in Docklands and how best to go about creating and enhancing the local character and neighbourhoods.

The First Decade of Docklands report is expected to be finalised by the end of this year, with the Second Decade of Docklands Plan published in the second half of 2010.

The plan will build on Council’s Delivering for Docklands 2007-2010 document which is nearing its end, and VicUrban’s Docklands 2020 Place Making Review.
