West Footscray Neighbourhood Plan

Council adopted the West Footscray Neighbourhood Plan at the CDSC meeting on 30 October 2018.  Council would like to thank all those who participated and provided feedback in the development of the plan.

The West Footscray Neighbourhood Plan (Plan) will ensure coordinated growth and development of the neighbourhood.  It is a long term planning framework that presents objectives, strategies and actions to facilitate appropriate land use and built form for the core activity area along Barkly Street and West Footscray station precinct. 

The Plan provides a vision for West Footscray as a well-connected, vibrant, sustainable and green neighbourhood with inviting open spaces, offering diverse housing choices and facilities that can be accessed safely by all modes of transportation including walking and cycling.

Note: Council made minor updates to the Plan in October 2022 as part of the process to include it in the Maribyrnong Planning Scheme (Amendment C162).
