THE next phase for the GV Link land sale and development at 250 Toolamba Road, Mooroopna has been greenlit by Greater Shepparton City Council. This decision, made at the recent November council meeting, is a significant milestone in the council’s long-term strategy to develop industrial land in the region.
The GV Link project has been a strategic goal of the council, as outlined in both the 2021-2025 Council Plan and Shepparton and Mooroopna 2050 Regional Growth Plan. However, the lack of infrastructure has stalled potential investors’ interest over the years.
The council is now seeking federal government assistance to address this issue, focusing on road upgrades, gateway treatments, and underground infrastructure. The provision of these amenities will kickstart the initial development of Stage 1, addressing the current shortage of industrial land.
Mayor, Councillor Shane Sali expressed that the council is keen to get started, with Stage 1 offering four serviced lots over 40 hectares. “The sale of land and development of industrial operations at GV Link is a long held strategic aim of Council, and investor interest in the site is at an all-time high,” he said.
“Council knows that there is a shortage of large plots of land for industry, logistics and manufacturing which have transport connections to major international and interstate freight gateways. GV Link is the answer to this and it is right here in our region.”
