Bayside plans for business
An addition to the Bayside Planning Scheme, Amendment C39, which aims to maintain and enhance Bayside’s industrial area as the municipality’s business employment region, has been approved by the Minister for Planning and is now effective. The amendment affects Bayside’s Sandringham and Cheltenham industrial area around Bay, Reserve, Jack and Park Roads and represents a significant step forward for business investment and employment in Bayside.
The Business 3 Zone will support existing businesses, provide growth opportunities for other businesses in Bayside and attract new businesses compatible with Bayside’s business and employment characteristics as well as enhancing the appearance and presentation of the area. Council also provided support for the redevelopment of this area through the Draft Economic Development Strategy and the Digital Building Technology Access Guidelines, which provides for IT building standards to the same level as commercial buildings in the Docklands.
If you have any questions about Amendment C39, please contact the Economic Development Department on 9599 4444 or view the Amendment online by clicking here.
