Priority Precincts is a new portfolio within the Department of Jobs,
Precincts and Regions tasked with identifying geographic areas of opportunity
to support jobs and housing growth, while building on Melbourne's legacy of
distinctiveness, liveability and sustainability.
Victoria's priority precincts are areas identified as having strong
economic and social opportunities. The initial priority precincts include:
- Parkville (including the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct)
- Fishermans Bend
- Richmond to Docklands
The Priority Precincts portfolio will also be responsible for whole of government coordination of Victoria's National Employment and Innovation Clusters (NEICs). The NEICs include Dandenong, Fishermans Bend, La Trobe, Monash, Parkville, Sunshine and Werribee.
By identifying Victoria's priority precincts, we are sending a signal to
the community, our federal and local government partners, and industry about
where the Victorian Government will be putting in extra effort to make sure
these places grow and excel.
