Bayswater Business Precinct (BBP)
Connecting business and people across Bayswater Business Precinct
The Bayswater Business Precinct (BBP) is a unique industrial precinct that crosses the boundaries of Knox, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges Council areas and is the second largest employment precinct in the Eastern Metropolitan Region.
It is home to a strong ecosystem of well connected industries with robust local supply chains with businesses in the precinct being diverse and include small to medium sized family businesses as well as global multinationals.
Recently, the three councils announced their commitment to work together to ensure that the BBP continues to grow as an economic powerhouse in the eastern suburbs.
In order to achieve this, The Bayswater Business Precinct Transformation Strategy has been developed and will be implemented over the next 10 years.
As a first step, and commencing later in the year, the councils will be developing the BBPs Spatial plan. This will see the review of land use planning, urban design and amenity upgrades.
We’ll provide more detail on the strategy as we continue to roll it out.
