West Footscray Neighbourhood Plan

The West Footscray Neighbourhood Plan has been developed to guide growth and development in the West Footscray area. It is a long term planning framework that presents objectives, strategies and actions to facilitate approproate land use and built form for the core activity area along Barkly Street and the West Footscray station precinct.

The core activity area is envisioned as a place where people can gather, socialise, shop, work, live and make use of community and leisure services without having to travel far. For the broader study area, the Plan outlines complementary strategies to improve access and movement, public places and community infrastructure.

The Plan replaces the West Footscray Urban Design Framework 2008 as the long-term plan.

Planning controls to implement the plan

The key land use and built form directions of the Plan are proposed to be incorporated into the Maribyrnong Planning Scheme through Amendment C162.
