Please note: The content below is based on the draft Cremorne Urban Design Framework (UDF) that was open for community feedback from Monday 7 November to Monday 12 December 2022. This may not be reflective of the revised UDF that was endorsed by Council at the Council Meeting on Tuesday 12 September 2023. A further round of consultation will occur early next year to finalise the UDF and exhibit the proposed permanent planning provisions. We will conduct this stage of consultation once we receive approval from the Victorian Government. This page will be updated at that time. Click here for more information.

The draft UDF promotes Cremorne as a world leading zero carbon precinct. The precinct provides an opportunity to showcase zero carbon, healthy and climate resilient businesses and workplaces.

Right now, the concentration of pavement, buildings, and other surfaces that absorb and retain heat can warm up the precinct. This is known as the urban heat island effect.

The draft UDF will seek to redesign roads and public spaces with:

  • new street trees
  • new planting
  • green roofs
  • new buildings with green roofs, walls and facades

This will increase Cremorne’s canopy cover and mitigate the urban heat island effect.
