City of Port Phillip



m2 To the vision

About this organisation

The City of Port Phillip is located on the northern shore of Port Phillip Bay, south of the Melbourne Central Business District. One of the oldest areas of Melbourne, Port Phillip is known for its many dynamic urban villages, a foreshore which stretches for over 11km, cultural diversity, magnificent heritage buildings, artistic expressions and beautiful parks and gardens.

Why we support the vision

Green spaces provide an essential balance to the highly urbanised environments in which we live. Increasing the amount of quality green space within the city will provide a direct benefit for residents and visitors through encouraging outdoor activity and improving mental wellbeing. We are also committed to realising the environmental benefits that green space and vegetation provides, including reducing air and water pollution and reducing the urban heat island. Through working together across organisations, the challenges of increasing green space in urban areas by 20% by 2020 becomes a more achievable reality.
