What is the Urban Design Framework (UDF) and what does is mean for Warburton?

This is your opportunity to help shape the future vision, design and development in Warburton township and we are asking for your feedback on the draft Warburton Urban Design Framework (UDF).

The draft UDF is a plan to shape the future of the Warburton Township. It builds on the Warburton Place Plan adopted in Nov 2021, and is supported by feedback from the community, local businesses, and advice from technical experts.

The UDF expands on what residents, workers, and visitors love about the area. It provides guidelines, standards, and plans to help decision-making and includes things like transport, car parks, housing, and recreational facilities.

Ultimately, it will ensure any new development fits seamlessly with the existing environment to make Warburton a functional, enjoyable, and attractive place to live, work and visit.

Watch the short video below to find out more about the Urban Design Framework or you can view the recording of the webinar held on 1st March.

The precincts and key places

The draft UDF highlights four distinct areas (precincts) within Warburton Township, each with its characteristics and opportunities to address the local needs now and into the future.

It details a vision for each precinct:

  • Precinct 1 - Warburton Gateway
  • Precinct 2 - Yarra Town Centre
  • Precinct 3 - Warburton Recreation ​
  • Precinct 4 - La La Town Centre

    The draft UDF outlines concept designs for site-specific locations (key places) within these precincts.
    While these places would require further strategic and planning processes, the UDF provides each key place with its vision and design objectives to guide future work.
