The Domain Precinct is experiencing great change due to activities led by both the Victorian Government and commercial sector.
To respond to the opportunities and challenges this change presents, Council developed a Public Realm Masterplan (PDF, 6.7 MB) which proposes a range of improvements to the Domain Precinct's public realm, including footpaths, roads, trees and streetscapes. It includes:
The Masterplan, developed through three stages of community engagement during 2018/19, demonstrates how the community’s vision and design principles for a well-designed and connected precinct.
Further steps are required to take the projects described in the Masterplan forward to deliver physical changes in the precinct.
Detailed design of projects identified in the Masterplan will involve feasibility and site analysis to prepare construction-ready designs. Delivery is dependent on the availability of funding and prioritisation of the project in Council's annual budget.
The Masterplan is also used to inform Council's other strategic projects, such as the Public Space Strategy and ongoing advocacy with key stakeholders.
