The City of Melbourne is transforming Southbank Boulevard and Dodds Street by shifting traffic to create 2.5 hectares of public space. In 2005 we participated in the first community consultation to transform Southbank Boulevard to create more public open space through.

The project was revisited in 2015 by the City of Melbourne with another round of community consultation for which we were involved at all levels.  In September 2016 phase II of the project in the form of an ideas plan was completed.  We look forward to the release of the Master Plan in 2017 and will continue to be involved.
