Unlocking high value jobs in Melbourne’s north: a plan for activating industrial land

Melbourne’s Northern corridor has a long and proud history of providing significant industrial employment, supported by proximity to key transport gateways, infrastructure assets and major employment locations.

The corridor can play a major role in supporting Victoria’s future economic prosperity and recovery from COVID-19 as part of a broader network of priority precincts and activity centres.

EY was engaged by NORTH Link together with the Cities of Hume and Whittlesea to undertake a strategic assessment of issues related to industrial land trends and opportunities in Melbourne’s North.

Join our expert panel as we review the key findings of the assessment, share knowledge and bring to the metropolitan land development debate a stronger focus on economic development at regional and State level.

Guest Speakers

  • Michael Sharp| Director of Planning and Development, City of Hume
  • Chris James | Executive Director, NORTH Link
  • Richard Brice | Director, Real Estate Advisory Services, EY
  • Lydia Wilson| Chair, Panel of Administrators, City of Whittlesea

New manufacturing and other job-creating opportunities supported by well-located, serviced and connected industrial land are so important to our Road to Recovery. The findings are not only relevant to the Northern Corridor but provide valuable insights for Greater Melbourne and our strategic planning.
