Bendigo CBD Structure Plan

The Plan provides clear strategic direction for council landowners and the community regarding the CBD's future.

Council’s aims for commissioning the preparation of the Structure Plan were to:

  • Develop a clear vision for the CBD that reflects the community’s values and aspirations for the CBD’s future
  • Provide design guidelines for future development in the CBD
  • Identify ways to encourage the development of retail, commercial and residential uses at preferred locations
  • Recommend ways to build on competitive advantages of the CBD to maintain and enhance its role in the region
  • Provide ideas for improvements to public spaces so they are active and safe places that help to define the identity of the Bendigo CBD
