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 sets out a plan for a network of high-quality public spaces. These spaces will be connected by a series of a safe, green and pedestrian friendly streets.
The precinct will also be better connected to areas of open space outside Cremorne including Barkly Gardens and Gosch’s Paddock.
The UDF identifies areas where new open space could be located. This includes opportunities on government-owned and private land.
An important aspect of the UDF is to reconnect Cremorne with the Yarra River (Birrarung). It seeks to provide new access for people of all abilities as well as upgrades to the Main Yarra Trail. The upgrades include:
- widened paths
- seating areas
- spaces to enjoy the river.
The UDF reimagines Cremorne Street and Church Street as key activity corridors. Both streets will be leafier and easier for pedestrians and cyclists to use.
