Industrial land supply monitoring 2018

The City regularly monitors industrial land supply and development activity.

The latest review was undertaken in September to December 2018.

Key findings

As at September 2018, there was a total of 2,709 hectares of zoned industrial land stocks including approved future growth (NEIP), of which 480 hectares were assessed as available (supply) for industrial development.

  • This quantum of zoned industrial supply relative to unavailable industrial land stocks equates to a total land area vacancy rate of 18%.
  • There has been an upturn in industrial development in the last three years despite the changes in the economy.
  • Annual consumption of industrial land has increased from 10 hectares per year to 23 hectares per year over the last three years.
  • Majority of vacant supply is in the GREP which is strategically set aside for large lots (1 to 5 hectares).
  • There is a lack of available supply in the southern parts of the city, with the Marshalltown Road Precinct nearly exhausted.
