During the election campaign, Labor made an election commitment of $10 million to the Gippsland Logistics Precinct. The funding will be a substantial contribution to Stage Two of the project, which will support the development of internal road and utility infrastructure and flood mitigation earthworks. Council awaits the delivery of this commitment and is ready to work with the Federal Government to progress the project which is crucial to the future success of the region.

When fully operational, Gippsland Logistics Precinct project will directly create up to 500 jobs, with its facilities acting as a catalyst to attract new industries and opportunities to the region
