Discover the Central City’s interesting, diverse neighbourhoods, each with its own unique characteristics, strengths and opportunities.
A number of Central City neighbourhoods are relatively new, others are well established with distinctive character and heritage features.
The established residential neighbourhoods in northern and western aspects of the Central City have a growing residential population. The emerging neighbourhoods to the south offer great opportunities for further residential growth, especially once key anchor projects, including Metro Sports Facility, the Canterbury Multi-Use Arena and South Frame laneways are completed.
It is estimated that 8080 people chose to call the Central City home (as of June 2021).
As part of the Council’s Central City Residential Programme(external link), Central City neighbourhoods have been identified to help focus future investigation and planning.
