Swan Street Structure Plan
The Swan Street Structure Plan provides a long term vision for the study area around Swan Street, Richmond and will be used to guide and manage future change in the area.
The Plan is organised around 10 precincts and includes objectives and strategies that outline how the overall vision will be achieved in relation to the four key themes of land use, built form, public realm and access and movement.
The Structure Plan aims to:
- Maintain and protect important employment areas and meet future local employment demand for commercial accommodation.
- Accommodate future housing growth.
- Manage change by directing growth to appropriate locations and encouraging a sustainable compact city form
- Protect established residential areas and valued heritage character.

The first round of public consultation on the draft Plan took place during May and June 2011.
In mid-2012, Council revised the draft Plan, and conducted further community consultation.
The final Plan was adopted by Council at its meeting on 17 December 2013.
At the start of the process of forming a proposed Structure Plan, Council sought community feedback on an Issues Paper. Feedback was sought in October 2010. Council received several submissions from the community which were used to assist Council officers in preparing a draft Structure Plan. Here is the Issues Paper - Swan Street Structure Plan (1.21MB)
