Urban Design Frameworks (UDFs) aim to provide guidance for the future development of various precincts in Yarra.
The frameworks deal with the design of buildings, public spaces, pedestrian and vehicle access, and landscape themes. They also include environmental, social, economic or cultural objectives.
Once a UDF is endorsed by Council, it becomes a strategic planning framework, not a rigid master plan.
These frameworks are significant pieces of work and involve several rounds of community consultation.
Cremorne and Church Street Precinct
This framework aims to support redevelopment that contributes to Cremorne as a mixed-use area, while supporting strategic aims to develop employment opportunities in the area. It will assist in identifying physical improvements to public transport, roads, footpaths and parks.

North Fitzroy Gasworks precinct
The area known as the Gasworks precinct is located between Queens Parade, Alexandra Parade and Smith Street, North Fitzroy.
The wider precinct also includes some commercial and industrial properties east of Smith Street on the south side of Queens Parade and the north side of Alexandra Parade.

Richmond Town Hall Precinct
In 2007, we adopted a UDF for the Richmond Town Hall precinct.
The framework aims to consolidate the precinct as a community hub which would encourage economic, environmental and social benefits.

Collingwood Town Hall precinct
In 2010 we adopted a UDF for the Collingwood Town Hall precinct.
The framework aims to provide guidance for the future development of the precinct generally bounded by Hoddle, Vere, Park, and Gipps streets, and deals with the design of buildings, public spaces, pedestrian and vehicle access, and landscape themes.
