The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is working closely with state and local government partners and other key stakeholders to progress a 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.

Planning for the precinct will be done in conjunction with the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions and will set clear objectives for the precinct’s future.
