Have your say on Lorimer precinct

05 Mar 2015

Docklanders are invited to take part in a community consultation on the future of the Lorimer precinct in Fishermans Bend.

Bordering Yarra’s Edge, the Lorimer precinct is the only part of Fishermans Bend that falls within City of Melbourne’s jurisdiction.

Following the release of the Fishermans Bend Strategic Framework Plan in 2014, the council is now working to develop a Lorimer structure plan.

Speaking at the Docklands Community forum on February 25, council planner Leanne Hodyl invited the community to take part in the community consultation.

“We want to hear from the community at this early stage,” Ms Hodyl said. “Our question for the community is what are your aspirations and priorities for this area?”

However, Yarra’s Edge resident and community forum representative Phil Spender said the community wouldn’t be ready to participate in a community consultation until concerns regarding the Fishermans Bend Strategic Framework plan were addressed.

“We were told by Labor before the election that there was going to be a complete review of the Fishermans Bend plan,” Mr Spender said.

The Metropolitan Planning Authority (MPA) prepared the Fishermans Bend Strategic Framework Plan and is also the responsible authority for the urban renewal area.

The City of Melbourne will host two sessions next month to assist with development of its Lorimer structure plan.

The first information session is on Wednesday, March 11 from 6pm to 7.30pm at the Library at the Dock.

The second information session is on Thursday, March 19 from 6pm to 7.30pm at Geotech Engineering at 174 Turner St, Port Melbourne.
