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) 2015-30 (PDF 6Mb) as Category 2 – Employment and Category 3 – Transition-residential MILS Areas.
Council Officers are working through the resolution of Council from the 8 May 2019 Council Meeting. View the resolution of Council.
Council meeting outcomes 8 May 2019
Council considered a report on the recommendations of the Panel for Amendment C164 at the 8 May 2019 Council Meeting. At the meeting, Council resolved to split the amendment further and abandon part of the amendment:
- Amendment C164 Part 2 (PDF 315Kb) (to be submitted to the Minister for Planning for approval, subject to further work with landowners)
- Amendment C164 Part 3 (PDF 320Kb) (properties in Part 3 of the amendment will not be rezoned at this stage and this part of the amendment has been abandoned)
The purpose of this was to allow some of the amendment (Part 2) to be submitted to the Minister for Planning for approval. And for Council Officers to consult further with landowners and business operators to determine the right zone to implement the objectives of the Moreland Industrial Land Strategy 2015-2030.
