Height limits for Melbourne CBD buildings Featured

New super-tall skyscrapers could be banned in central Melbourne unless they include a park, a childcare centre or an iconic city laneway.

Victoria is considering lowering height limits for new CBD buildings unless developers include amenities for the city.

"The controls will allow you to build to a certain height depending on the size of your block. If you want to go higher than that, what we're seeking is you provide a contribution back to the city," Planning Minister Richard Wynne told 3AW radio on Tuesday.

  • Could Docklands be a good place for a theme park?

    by Olivia Lambert  (

    COULD Melbourne soon be the happiest place on earth?

    Melburnians are dreaming about the possibility of building a Disney Land it turns out it could actually work.

    The suggestion first emerged on 3AW earlier this week, with columnist Rita Panahi saying Melbourne was underperforming in the theme park department.

    While of course Melbourne has Luna Park, it seems that is just not as exhilarating as it used to be.

    Melbourne is being dominated by other cities in Australia, the outskirts of the Gold Coast and even Sydney are dotted with amusement parks.

    A theme park would give Melbourne a chance to compete, and Docklands was flagged as the perfect place for a Disneyland.
