A grand plan

11 May 2017

A grand plan Image

The City of Melbourne’s master plan for City Rd was acknowledged for planning excellence this month by the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA).

The master plan was recognised on two fronts – receiving a “Best Planning Ideas – Small Project Award”, as well as a “Commendation for Public Engagement and Community Planning”.

With early works set to begin on the master plan this year, the initiative will revamp City Rd from its industrial past into a more welcoming and activated streetscape for the Southbank community.

The project was recognised for its extensive and innovative public consultation process that occurred over a number of years, which resulted in a master plan that has received much praise from the local community.

The project will be completed in 2022.
