The Industrial Lands Strategy has been produced to provide a strategic planning framework to guide the future development of industrial lands within the local government area.
The project as finalised investigates the structural drivers for industrial development by analysing population projections and labour market profiles associated with the supply and demand of industrial land stock. The social, environmental and economic impacts of industrial land provision are also analysed.
The Strategy provides informed advice on the preferred location, size, zoning and amount of industrial land required for sustainable employment generation and industry functioning and will be used to guide Council's future release of land for industrial purposes.
The structre of this Strategy will be updated as part of the Local Growth Management Strategy review process to sit as a chapter within this broader strategy.
