'A special place on the foreshore for everyone that welcomes a diversity of sustainable uses anchored by a working marina.' St Kilda Marina site vision

The former 50-year lease of the St Kilda Marina has come to an end, with an interim lease to be in place until 2022. Council is now in Stage Four of a project to secure a new long-term lease arrangement at this special place. Council is committed to working with the Victorian Government, community, users of the marina and other key stakeholders to re-imagine the St Kilda Marina site.

The work to procure a new long-term lease arrangement for the site is outlined in the Project Approach.

Latest news

On 5 June 2019 Council endorsed the St Kilda Marina Planning Scheme Amendment, Procurement Plan, updated Probity Plan, updated Project Approach and Community & Stakeholder Engagement Plan. See Planning Scheme Amendment, Procurement & Project Approach updates for more information.

Site Brief endorsed

In Stage Three of the St Kilda Marina project, Council worked with a Community Panel and engaged with the broader community to determine parameters (design criteria) for the site's key components.

These design criteria are a major component of the St Kilda Marina Project Site Brief, a key document that was endorsed by Council on 15 May 2019.

The Site Brief will inform the market and guide interested parties to provide suitable proposals in a competitive process to procure a new long-term lease arrangement. It will also be used as the basis of a planning scheme amendment, providing a framework for assessing all design proposals for the site.

To inform the community of the next steps in the project and answer questions about the Site Brief, we are hosting two drop-in sessions in June.
