Recognising METRONET’s success will lie in the public and private sector working together. Today was the first METRONET Private Sector Reference Group meeting.
This Group will provide the METRONET Taskforce, chaired by the Minister for Transport, Planning, Lands and Heritage, with a better understanding of the opportunities and constraints associated with the METRONET objective to deliver integrated and innovative land-use outcomes.
In the first Private Sector Reference Group meeting, the METRONET Office provided an update on the Stage One projects, market analysis to determine development appetite for each precinct and early development of a precinct implementation strategy.
We are excited about working with this group of industry bodies and look forward to their input throughout the project.
