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.
There needs to be clarity and certainty around how industrial and commercial areas are planned to ensure they operate efficiently and remain viable.
The draft Melbourne Industrial and Commercial Land Use Plan has been developed to do just this. It builds on the relevant policies and actions of Plan Melbourne 2017-2050, and establishes a planning framework to enable state and local governments to better plan for future employment and industry needs.
This will help government identify which land should be retained or considered primarily for industrial or employment purposes, and which could be considered for alternative uses.
