Industrial Land

The Portland Industrial Land Strategy was undertaken by Glenelg Shire Council in partnership with Regional Development Victoria.

The Strategy strategically identifies the location and attributes of industrial land to meet the long term needs of industry.

The strategy took into consideration:

  • Current and forecast industry trends
  • Understanding land supply that is fit for purpose
  • Identifying and advancing solutions to land use and servicing constraints

The strategy, long term, will result in new and modified land use controls including rezoning, local policies, framework and precinct plans together with design guidelines for all industrial development and guidance for interface areas. The scope will cover the City of Portland, its immediate surrounds and the Portland - Heywood corridor.

A project consultancy team led by Parsons Brinckerhoff Pty Ltd and Macroplan Dimasi Pty Ltd were appointed in early 2015 to assist Council in preparing the Portland Industrial Land Strategy.
