Emerging and Future developments

Emerging and new employment precincts will support job creation and diverse employment opportunities for our existing and future residents.

Beveridge Intermodal Freight Terminal

A transformational project for Victoria, recognising its significance as both a long term freight terminal and a major future employment precinct in the coming years. Partner with us to advocate for improved infrastructure connections to harness the potential of this precinct, such as the E6, to benefit business and community.

Strategically located to maximise links to the Inland Rail, Hume Freeway and proposed E6/Outer Metropolitan Ring Road.

Over 1,000 hectares of land is identified for the Beveridge Intermodal Freight Terminal and associated freight and logistics.

Lockerbie (Cloverton)

The broader Donnybrook area is projected to be home to more than 70,000 people at full build out, across the Donnybrook/Woodstock, English Street Precinct Structure Plan areas and the recently approved Shenstone Park Precinct Structure Plan. Significant development has occurred to date in the area, which adjoins the Lockerbie Precinct Structure Plan area to the west at Kalkallo.

Shenstone Park

Shenstone Park Precinct Structure Plan has been identified as a project on the VPA’s Fast Track Program.

The Shenstone Park Precinct Structure Plan applies to approximately 628 hectares of land generally bounded by Donnybrook Road to the north, the Urban Growth Boundary to the east, the Wollert suburb boundary to the south, and the Sydney/Melbourne railway corridor to the west. The precinct lies immediately south of the Donnybrook/Woodstock Precinct Structure Plan area and east of the English Street Precinct Structure Plan area, while the Donnybrook Train Station is just outside the north west corner of the precinct.

The precinct accommodates a mix of residential, employment, recreational and community uses which integrates with the neighbouring Wollert and Donnybrook-Woodstock Precinct Structure Plans.

4 Ten Epping

4Ten Epping is approximately 62 hectares of industrial land wholly owned and developed by Frasers Property Industrial. This precinct is situated within the prominent Cooper Street Employment precinct and will further strengthen the competitive advantage of the Cooper Street West Employment precinct.

O’Herns Logistics Park

This prominent site was recently approved to be rezoned is to increase the availability of employment land in the area and the municipality more broadly. It was considered that the rezoning would provide several hundred local jobs for existing and future residents within the City of Whittlesea.

O’Herns Logistics Park is for large-scale industrial businesses looking to grow in the heart of Melbourne’s booming northern industrial corridor. This site is set across approximately 140 hectares of new employment land, creating the opportunity for the creation of new businesses and approximately 4,000 jobs.

Cooper T&P

A Time & Place project, Epping Logistics Estate offers prime industrial land in the most prominent location of Cooper Street Epping with lot sizes available from 1,000m2.

New Epping

Managed by RiverleeNew Epping, located at 215 Cooper Street Epping, is positioned to become a unique mixed-use precinct providing health, commercial and residential opportunities across the 51-hectare site.

Mernda Town Centre

Our longstanding vision for the Mernda Town Centre - to be located at the corner of Bridge Inn Road and Plenty Road - is for a traditional centre focussed around a main street. It will be pedestrian-friendly, well serviced by public transport and supported by a mix of land uses.

Once developed, this 20-hectare site will provide a mix of commercial, retail, mixed use and residential product to the Mernda Catchment.


The Wollert area is expected to accommodate around 35,000 to 40,000 over the next several decades and approximately 8,000 job opportunities will be created.

An employment hub is located along Epping Road and the future Outer Melbourne Ring Road / E6 corridor. The area is zoned for development, including a major town centre and within proximity to utility services.
