Greater Shepparton Industrial Development Guidelines

Industrial areas in Greater Shepparton have historically often reflected inadequate attention to design and site layout matters.

This has resulted in industrial estates comprising rudimentary shed structures, often with office and storage additions in different styles to the principal building, and poor vehicle accessibility and accommodation, minimal landscaping and sign clutter.

Poor estate and site planning for industrial development is wasteful of space and can compromise future building extensions and business expansion on a lot.

This guide aims to assist the development of industrial areas in Greater Shepparton by encouraging high standards of development; enabling Council to quickly assess and approve plans for developments which comply with the Policy; and providing examples of developments which meet Council and servicing authority requirements.
