Latrobe Valley GovHub a step closer28/06/2019
The Latrobe Valley GovHub is a step closer with planning approvals now in place and local businesses being encouraged to register their interest in working on the landmark project.
New planning controls have been approved for the site in Church Street, Morwell, which will house 300 workers once built.
The GovHub will accommodate 200 staff from Victorian Government agencies, including personnel from Earth Resources Regulation, Parks Victoria and Solar Victoria.
The Victorian Government is now calling on the Commonwealth to match Victoria’s commitment by locating more Australian public service jobs to the region.
The project will create up to 100 jobs during construction.
Local businesses interested in being part of the Latrobe Valley GovHub project are invited to register with the Industry Capability Network, which will be holding an information session on Tuesday, 30 July. The session will give businesses the opportunity to understand more about the project and to meet with the developer.
Early demolition and site clearing work is under way and construction will begin in August.
The new GovHub is part of the State Government’s $266 million package to support economic growth in the Latrobe Valley, create jobs and drive the businesses and industries of the future.
