West Melbourne Structure Plan


The City of Melbourne has approved a revised structure plan for West Melbourne in February 2018.  The structure plan focuses on 3 key areas of community concern:  traffic calming measures, planning controls and community amenity.

West Melbourne is a long-established area with a strong community, diverse mix of housing, warehouses and businesses, and a rich cultural and architectural heritage. The new structure plan guides the development of future growth in West Melbourne. The plan outlines tailored built form controls, a celebration of character and heritage buildings, creation of a new high street at Spencer Street and turning ‘grey to green’ by unlocking 10,000m2 of new open space.
