Bayswater Business Precinct (BBP)

Well known across Australia and internationally for its skills in heavy vehicle, fibreglass, metals, pharmaceuticals, medical technology, defence and construction, the Bayswater Business Precinct is an economic powerhouse which contributes over $14 billion to the local and Victorian economies.

Strategies Underway

The Councils of Knox, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges have been working toward improving the Bayswater Business Precinct over the last few years, to ensure that local business can continue to prosper. A Background Report has been prepared that provides useful information including economic profile, challenges, and precinct strengths and capabilities.
