North East Link – support for tenants in Bulleen Industrial Zone

Sep 11, 2019 | North East Link, Parliament

Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (13:00): My constituency question is to the Minister for Transport Infrastructure, and again I am asking: what will become of the small business tenants in the Bulleen industrial zone?

I direct it to Minister Allan in the hope that she will answer. Previous planning questions such as those directed to the Minister for Planning have bounced back to me unanswered. It appears the forward button is missing from some ministerial email accounts.

On a recent tour of the Bulleen industrial zone I met with Raymond Capaldi from Wonder Pies. I have since been back on a pie run for my Doncaster office, and I highly recommend a visit.

In late 2017 Mr Capaldi took on a lease in the Bulleen industrial zone and fitted out a commercial kitchen to produce his range of gourmet pies. He is armed with a solid business plan, good contracts and big plans. He has built up a team of bakers who are all committed to his business. Investment in this current location would be wasteful. Staff who commute to work want to live locally, but where will that be if Wonder Pies must move?

So I ask the minister: what compensation or relocation options are available for Bulleen industrial zone tenants like Mr Capaldi and his team?
