Visioning Footscray – share your vision

Published on 05 November 2021


 Footscray is changing with many new developments, including a new hospital and learning precinct under construction. Recognised by Government as a Key Business Precinct, it is set to continue to grow – both in stature and population –as it attracts significant new investment.

To plan for this, we want to know how you want Footscray to look in the future – your vision for Footscray. Your feedback will help guide the development of the Footscray Public Realm Plan which will identify infrastructure needs, and opportunity to direct investment and advocate for a prosperous and liveable City for all.

When developing your vision you may want to think about:

  • Design and character of streets, open spaces and buildings
  • Connectivity – how you might want to travel around
  • Perceptions around safety
  • A personal reflection or experience

The Footscray Public Realm Plan will build on the previous direction captured in the Footscray River Edge Masterplan 2014 and the City Edge Masterplan 2012. These documents focused on opportunity to expand the network of public spaces, redevelop streets to make them more friendly and enhance local connections.

A word from the Mayor, Cr Michael Clarke:

“We look forward to our community and stakeholders sharing their vision for the future, which will help us identify common goals that we can work towards, as we shape our network of public streets, open spaces and connections. We’ll be able to use this feedback to both inform our planning and advocate for a better Footscray and investment in the area.”
