Have your say on strategy to boost local jobs

Published on 25 January 2024

City of Melton residents have a unique opportunity to have their say on a strategic vision to boost local jobs and deliver economic growth that keeps pace with our rapidly growing community.

The Melton Employment and Industrial Land Strategy is a long-term plan for the use and development of commercial and industrial land in Australia’s fastest growing municipality.

The strategy uses the City’s abundant supply of commercial and industrial land, population growth and State and Federal Government infrastructure investment to increase local employment opportunities and foster economic growth.

Key initiatives from the strategy include:

  • The identification of an economic corridor along the Western Freeway that will support our existing and future industrial and employment precincts and activity centres.
  • A municipality-wide framework of employment land use and precinct plans that will guide the future use of employment land.

Melton City Council is inviting feedback on the draft strategy from investors, businesses and the wider community.

The strategy will provide certainty to the private sector and our community in the long-term and help inform investment decisions.

Consultation closes at 5pm on 29 February.
