Help design the future of Cremorne

We’ve created a draft Urban Design Framework (UDF) to guide the growth, development, and character of Cremorne.

This will help us ensure the area meets the needs of Cremorne’s growing population, while remaining an attractive and vibrant area to work and live.

The draft UDF aims to build on the things that workers, residents and visitors love about the area and strives to make them better.

Why are we creating an Urban Design Framework?

Right now Cremorne is undergoing a rapid period of growth and change. In 2018, the Victorian Government recognised Cremorne as an ‘enterprise precinct’, a hub for innovation, economic growth and prosperity on a global scale.

To make this a reality, the Victorian Government and Yarra City Council developed the Cremorne Place Implementation Plan (CPIP) in December 2020.

The plan was developed in partnership with Yarra City Council, in consultation with the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR) and Department of Environment, Land Water and Planning (DELWP) and the Cremorne community.

One of the key actions from the CPIP was to develop a draft UDF for Cremorne.

What is an Urban Design Framework?

The draft UDF is a plan to shape Cremorne’s future. It builds on the vision established in the Cremorne Place Implementation Plan and is supported by the feedback provided by the community, local businesses and advice from technical experts over the last three years

The draft UDF includes actions to support Cremorne’s important economic role and its residential precincts.

It identifies:

  • opportunities for new public spaces
  • better connections to the Yarra River
  • improvements in public transport
  • improvements to Cremorne’s streets to make walking and cycling easier
  • planning controls to guide new development and protect heritage buildings.

Have your say.

This is your opportunity to help shape the way growth and development happens in Cremorne.

We want your feedback on the draft UDF to create a shared vision for Cremorne. Read more about the draft Urban Design Framework and submit your feedback by visiting our Your Say Yarra page before 9am Monday 12 December.
