The government is planning further place-making activities in the Docklandsarea, includingthe interpretation of heritage elements in public space, the infilling of major movement corridors with activated laneways, and the extension of public transport. Short-term creative art and performance spaces, temporary uses, such as pop-up vending stores and busking, and a variety of land- and water-based activities should address place activation concerns of the public domain.
The absence of a mix of ages, social, and economic diversity and a lack of affordable housing continue to plague the Docklands development and hinder the people-focused principles of connecting places. This mainly stems from a lack of community participation and strategic planning in the initial stages of development, which allowed the commercial side to dominate in the development.
Considered within the framework of connecting places, the historic Docklands area enjoys an ideal location near the CBD, with access via Southern Cross Station, part of the city’s main transport network. Recent improvements in bicycle infrastructure, pedestrian pathways, and tram lines are examples of demand management, adding to the mobility convenience of the community and reducing the use of private vehicles and carbon emissions.
