Overview

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.

The Victorian Government invites you to read the draft Melbourne Industrial and Commercial Land Use Plan and provide feedback by making a submission and/or completing the survey below.

Submissions close on Tuesday 31 December 2019 at 5.00pm.

Survey


Planning principles and strategies for employment land.

The draft Melbourne industrial and commercial land use plan includes principles and strategies to guide planning for industrial and commercial land. (page 32).

Do you think the principles and strategies provide enough clarity and guidance to assist planning for industrial and commercial land?

Plan Melbourne identifies state-significant industrial precincts. The draft Melbourne industrial and commercial land use plan identifies regionally-significant industrial precincts and includes criteria used as the basis to identify these locations (page 34).

Do you support the criteria developed to identify regionally-significant industrial precincts?


Purpose for regionally-significant industrial precincts and local industrial precincts.

Plan Melbourne outlines a purpose for state-significant industrial precincts. The draft Melbourne industrial and commercial land use plan identifies a purpose for regionally-significant industrial precincts and local industrial precincts (page 35).

Do you support the purpose developed for regionally-significant industrial precincts and local industrial precincts?
