Rezoning new home for Bulleen businesses

Aug 28, 2019 | Parliament

Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (12:53): My constituency question today is for the Minister for Planning, Minister Wynne. A council-owned area of land at Websters Road in Templestowe has been identified as a potential site for Bulleen industrial zone businesses who will be displaced by the North East Link tunnel. This area is currently zoned for public use and sits immediately outside the urban growth boundary. The site could take around a third of the businesses from Bulleen, and possibly more if smart subdivision planning is undertaken. I have met with some of the business owners in Bulleen, and many are in disbelief that they will have to move. Some have resigned to closing up completely. Most just do not know what the next step will be. The Websters Road option gives them hope and a plan to work towards, so I ask the minister will he undertake the required rezoning of the Websters Road site in a timely manner and allow the council to subdivide the area to accommodate businesses from Bulleen?
