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 includes a radical redesign of Cremorne’s street network. The changes will make it easier to walk, scoot and cycle around Cremorne though:
- widened footpaths
- more trees
- new pocket plazas
- minimising through traffic
- new and improved cycling routes
The UDF identifies some much-needed works for five important and busy intersections within Cremorne and its edges.
- Hotspot 1: Kelso Street and Punt Road intersection
- Hotspot 2: Cremorne Street and Kelso Street intersection
- Hotspot 3: Cremorne Street and Swan Street intersection
- Hotspot 4: Balmain Street, west of underpass
- Hotspot 5: Balmain Street and Church Street intersection
These works are critical to improve the street network and encourage sustainable transport. Council will need to work with the Department of Transport to make these important changes.
The UDF also suggests changes to the amount of parking that new commercial developments need to provide. This will help reduce the number of cars on the road whilst also encouraging workers and visitors to walk, cycle or use public transport.
