People’s Plan for Fed Square

WE NEED YOUR FEEDBACK

We’ve prepared a People's Plan for Fed Square and will present a giant version to Minister for Planning Richard Wynne during the State election campaign. Unlike the State Government we'd love to hear your feedback.

It’s Our City. It’s Our Square. And it’s Our Plan.

Let's tell the Government we want to enjoy Federation Square without being overshadowed by Apple.

DRAFT

People’s Plan for Fed Square


The Our City, Our Square campaign proposes a People’s Plan for Fed Square in response to the State Government’s decision to demolish Yarra Building to make way for an Apple store.

We call on the State Government to work with the people of Victoria to develop a comprehensive vision for Fed Square to ensure its continued success as one of our most important civic and cultural public places.

To achieve this, Citizens for Melbourne and the Our City, Our Square campaign calls on the State Government to commit to —

REVERSE THE DECISION TO PLACE AN APPLE STORE AT FED SQUARE

AND commit to —

Our five‑point plan

  1. Review and strengthen the Civic and Cultural Charter to place community and cultural activity at the heart of Fed Square.
  2. Establish a People’s Panel of independently selected citizens to give people a voice in Fed Square’s future.
  3. Review Fed Square’s funding to ensure its continued ability to provide the people of Victoria and the city of Melbourne with an internationally recognised public square that places civic and cultural activity first.
  4. Review Fed Square’s management structure. Fed Square needs expertise suited to its cultural and civic role.
  5. Prepare a Design Management Plan for Fed Square to guide future development.
