The Victorian Government is committed to ensuring policies and strategies are in place to improve Victoria's economic performance and productivity. Ensuring enough well-priced industrial and commercial land is available in the right locations, will strengthen industry and support our expected population growth.
The Melbourne Industrial and Commercial Land Use Plan has been developed to provide an overview of current and future needs for industrial and commercial land across metropolitan Melbourne and put in place a planning framework to support state and local government to plan more effectively for future employment and industry needs.
In November 2019, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning released a draft of the plan for a two-month period of comment and feedback. A total of 107 submissions were received at the close of the consultation process. A separate report – Melbourne Industrial and Commercial Land Use Plan Summary of Submissions – summarises what was heard through the engagement process.
