About the Project

Moore Point is a 32.5 hectare precinct located directly east of Liverpool CBD. It sits within the broader 38 hectare Georges River North Precinct defined by the Liverpool Collaboration Area Place Strategy. The site contains industrial uses and is bound by the Georges River and Lake Moore on its western, northern and eastern boundaries. In 2020, Mecone lodged a consolidated planning proposal on behalf of Coronation Property Co and Leamac Property Group to rezone the land from industrial to mixed-use and recreation. The planning proposal will create a vibrant mixed-use precinct as expressed in a range of local and State planning policies.

The proposal will fulfill a number of objectives for Liverpool including revitalisation of the Georges River to create a linear open space network to Haigh Park, improved access to the site via bridge crossings from Liverpool Train Station and Liverpool Innovation Precinct, retention of heritage assets to create a Heritage Quarter, capacity for a new primary school and a range of sites capable of accommodating a mix of residential, commercial, hotel and community uses.

Mecone has been working with the client since 2018 to develop a planning strategy and approval process for the site. Scope of works have included:

  • Preparation of various planning reports including strategic assessment, infrastructure funding and rezoning advice, approval pathways, various memos on targeted planning issues, waterfront strategy, site-specific DCP and demographic analysis,
  • Lodgement of a detailed planning proposal package including planning proposal report and mapping,
  • Negotiation with Council officers, presentations to Councillors and representations to the Department of Planning and Environment,
  • Planning coordination and management of a multi-disciplinary consultant team to resolve key issues and progress the planning proposal to exhibition.
