Priority Precincts background

The Priority Precincts portfolio was established in 2018. The Portfolio will identify geographic areas of opportunity to support jobs and housing growth, while building on Melbourne's legacy of distinctiveness, liveability and sustainability. The initial Priority Precincts include:

  • Parkville (including the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct)
  • Arden
  • Fishermans Bend
  • Richmond to Docklands

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is partnering with Yarra City Council to support Cremorne’s continued growth as a thriving enterprise precinct.

Through Invest Victoria, LaunchVic and Small Business Victoria, we know what many of the factors are that drive business decision-making about place and value creation. We also know what some of the success factors are in precinct development which are described below.

Cities need a diversity of employment areas. Innovation and enterprising activity takes place across a whole spectrum of places and spaces. ‘Enterprise precincts’ are fertile ground for business creation. We also have a strong track record for transforming startups to high-value firms.

It can be challenging for businesses to grow. We are seeking industry input to understand what is currently working successfully in the Inner Metro region or elsewhere.

Background

The Inner Metro Partnership is one of six advisory groups established by the Victorian Government. The Partnership is a way for local communities to engage directly with state and local governments, and advise the Victorian Government of the top priorities for jobs, services and infrastructure across the region. This advice will become part of the government’s key decision-making processes.

The Inner Metro Partnership’s vision for the region is to harness and manage the opportunities growth provides in a way that supports a strong economy, a sustainable future and greater social inclusion. Following engagement with its community throughout 2018, the Partnership has developed its advice to the Victorian Government on the regional priorities for the Inner Metro region.
