Strategic Sites

There are a large number of sites across Melbourne that have been identified for redevelopment but, for a number of reasons, progress has been slow or has stalled.

The VPA is assisting councils, landowners and developers to speed up the redevelopment of these sites for jobs and housing by relieving planning backlogs and streamlining approvals.  This can happen in a range of ways, including by providing direct support and consultancy advice to councils.

The VPA understands that every site is different, with its own set of unique challenges – from rezoning issues to soil contamination. As such, the VPA adapts its approach to each project, working closely with key partners to determine the level and nature of support they require.

The VPA is already working on a number of strategic sites across Melbourne, including Clayton Business Park, the PMP Printing site in Clayton and the Altona North Strategic Site in Melbourne’s west. We are keen to hear from other councils or developers/landowners who may have specific sites that are of a scale or level of significance that would benefit from support.
