Overview

The Geelong Ring Road Employment Precinct (GREP) is Geelong’s largest designated precinct for industrial development.

A Range of Infrastructure and Services

The City of Greater Geelong, in partnership with the Victorian State Government and existing land owners in the GREP, are undertaking a comprehensive program to provide key infrastructure to GREP.

Stage One, now completed, included the construction of O’Briens Road and associated drainage at the southern end of the precinct. This is creating land along the Geelong Ring Road that is fully serviced and ready for development.

Stage two of development, will open up large size lots in the north of the GREP through the provision of major drainage facilities.A large wetland system is currently under construction and will collect all storm water from the northern half of GREP.  It will also retard the stormwater, treat it to best practice standards and one section will be used as a storm water harvesting component.

Stage three will consolidate a former residential estate ready for industrial development with major drainage infrastructure provided.

The long term vision for development of the GREP is for the area to contain a full range of services for industry. This may include business servicing, banking and medical services as well as food and hospitality.

A full range of service providers exist in the region. Gas, water/sewerage, power and fibre optic services are all available within the GREP. Individual requirements should be negotiated with each provider.

Supportive Local Government

The City of Greater Geelong is preparing the way for development by building the infrastructure needed for development and smoothing the way with the planning processes such as the preparation of the Native Vegetation Precinct Plan.

The City has established a dedicated Business Facilitation Group to provide further information and discuss investment opportunities. We can assist with pre application inquiries to help ensure that when permits are lodged they have addressed key issues, thereby avoiding unnecessary delays.
