The City of Melbourne’s Draft Southbank Structure Plan 2010 proposes “new zoning and development controls to improve street level amenity, initiatives to improve walking and cycling and the establishment of new community centres to enhance the precinct’s look and feel”. The plan will guide growth over the next 30 years in order to accommodate the increasing resident and worker populations.

Three new local activity centres will provide community, commercial, retail and residential facilities. These will be located at City Road around the former Boyd School site, along Sturt Street and, in an ambitious proposal, on a deck over the entrance to City Link. The plan will be introduced to Council’s Future Melbourne Committee next Tuesday prior to a six week community consultation process.
