The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) worked with state and local government and other key stakeholders to prepare a preliminary planning framework for the Richmond to Docklands urban renewal precinct, including the Southbank Arts Precinct.

The precinct is of great cultural significance and has a long history of welcoming people from near and far to gather and celebrate sport, art and life. The collection of sporting, art and cultural venues contributes to Victoria’s world-famous liveability and helps place Melbourne on the global stage, attracting millions of domestic and international visitors.

The precinct also takes in Melbourne’s most prized gardens and public spaces – including Kings Domain, Yarra Park and the Yarra River.

This preliminary work provided advice internal to government. Any potential further planning for the precinct will be done in conjunction with the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR).
