Amendment C164 - Rezoning industrial land in the Brunswick Activity Centre

About Amendment C164

Moreland is committed to creating a strong and prosperous economy and creating sustainable neighbourhoods where residents can access services and businesses, and have the opportunity to find jobs locally. The types of jobs needed in Moreland are changing. Traditional industrial jobs like manufacturing are being replaced by smaller office-based jobs.

Council is proposing to rezone a number of industrial precincts in Brunswick to allow for new employment opportunities and residential development.

The Amendment applies to industrial land within the Brunswick Activity Centre identified in the Moreland Industrial Land Strategy (MILS) 2015-2030 (PDF 6Mb) as Category 2 – Employment and Category 3 – Transition-residential MILS Areas.


At the 9 August 2017 Council Meeting, Council resolved to seek authorisation to preapre Amendment C164 to the Moreland Planning Scheme. Council received authorisation from the Minister for Planning to prepare and exhibit the amendment on 16 October 2017.
