The Victorian government has set the population target for Fishermans Bend, Australia’s biggest urban regeneration project, at 80,000. In doing so, it has rejected a recommendation that the target for the 480-hectare site be set at 120,000. Danni Addison from the Urban Development Institute of Australia was critical of the government’s decision, saying the planning framework for Fishermans Bend represents a "missed opportunity". Victorian Planning Minister Richard Wynne claims the government is "fixing the mess Matthew Guy created".
