Inquiry into proposed lease of Port of Melbourne
The Property Council has lodged a submission to the Government Inquiry into
the proposed lease of Port of Melbourne.
Regardless of the timing of the Inquiry, the Property Council supports the
Government's intention to lease the Port of Melbourne to generate much needed
capital for infrastructure investment across Victoria.
While we support the State Government entering into a long term lease
arrangement for the Port, the Property Council holds concerns regarding the
proposed arrangements currently before Parliament. The concerns primarily relate
to ensuring the best port and freight infrastructure is available to Victorians
both during ,and beyond the terms of the proposed lease.
