This is the highest level of residential land supply recorded since comparative data became available from 2002-03. the precinct structure plan approvals process is well ahead of lot construction rates. With the pending approvals of further precinct structure plans this is likely to change.

209 hectares of land was zoned for industrial use and 259 hectares of industrial land was rezoned to non-industrial use. was rezoned to commercial uses to reflect the current character or intended future use of some locations. This resulted in a net decrease of 50 hectares of industrial land across metropolitan Melbourne. Some industrial land was also rezoned to provide land for transport infrastructure in this period. Figure 14: Land rezoned from industrial between July 2013 and June 2015. Some industrial land. A sizeable share (37%) was zoned to a commercial use mainly in Epping (City of Whittlesea) and Cranbourne (City of Casey) as part of the implementation of the activity centre zone.2 Rezoning of Industrial Land for Other Uses Over the last year. A high proportion (figure 14) of land rezoned for non-industrial purposes was zoned to a transport zone (either a Road Zone or Public Use Zone 4) to reflect the current use of the land. mostly in the inner and middle parts of Melbourne.708 hectares of industrial land was rezoned for other uses. and some industrial land has also been rezoned for conservation purposes. metropolitan Melbourne Source: Department of Environment. particularly in the outer suburbs and growth areas. drainage reserves and other uses within the SSIPs.

Water and Planning 2015 4. metropolitan Melbourne Source: Department of Environment. large rezonings from industrial land to other uses occurred in Brimbank where land in Derrimut occupied by part of the Western Freeway was rezoned to a Road Zone (72 ha). The introduction of the Activity Centre Zone has resulted in some industrial land being identified for commercial or mixed use purposes in Epping (63 ha) and Cranbourne (21 ha). Land.3 The Scale and Spatial Distribution of Individual Rezoning Rezonings to industrial land are infrequent but tend to involve very large land areas. 205 hectares was part of one rezoning in Whittlesea. Urban Development Program Report 2015 17 . An exception to this was the zoning of 225 hectares of industrial land to create the Fishermans Bend urban renewal area which is wholly located within the Port Phillip and the City of Melbourne LGAs. Around 80% of rezonings from industrial are between 100m2 and five hectares. Of the 209 hectares of land zoned to industrial land in 2014-15.Figure 15: Land rezoned from industrial between July 2000 and June 2015. Rezoning from industrial to other uses tend to be more frequent but also tend to involve smaller parcels of land. Industrial land near Sunshine Railway Station was zoned to Public Use 4 Zone (Transport) (31 ha) to reflect the current use of the land for rail lines. This land was first identified as a proposed major Industrial area in Melbourne 2030. In 2014-15. This can be seen in figure 14 with major rezonings in the West. South and Officer/Pakenham SSIPs. The land is located south of Cooper Street and is bounded by Merri Creek to the west and the Hume Freeway to the east.

However. 84 hectares of this is due to the development of phase 1 of the Department of Agriculture’s Post Entry Quarantine facility in Mickleham. similar to those witnessed prior to the GFC. Figure 18: Consumption of industrial land. While the Mickleham facility is included in the total for consumption. If this development is subtracted from the total consumption then the current level of consumption in the North SSIP would be approximately 22 hectares. The North SSIP has experienced a significant increase in consumption in 2014-15 to its highest level of consumption. with the exception of the West SSIP which has maintained relatively high levels of consumption. Water and Planning 2015 4. However. as discussed.6 Spatial Distibution of Industrial Land Consumption SSIPs are where the vast majority of industrial land consumption occurs. Post-GFC consumption of vacant industrial land has generally declined in all of the SSIPs (figure 19). 2005-06 to 2014-15 Hectares Average annual consumption 350 Pre GFC Average (1994 -95 to 2007-08) Post GFC Average (2008-09 to 2014-15) 300 250 200 150 100 50 0 2005-06 2006-07 2007-08 2008-09 2009-10 2010-11 2011-12 2012-13 2013-14 2014-15 Financial year Source: Department of Environment.Consumption for 2014-15 is the greatest since the GFC with a net 276 hectares consumed in 2014-15. Phase 2 of the Mickleham facility is anticipated to be completed by 2018 and will continue to impact on the Urban Development Progeam until construction is complete. 84 hectares of this is due to the development the Mickleham facility and does not reflect market conditions.
