THE Shire of Mur­ray is on the brink of se­cur­ing $21.75 mil­lion for con­struc­tion of a world-class agri-in­no­va­tion precinct within Trans­form Peel’s Peel Busi­ness Park through the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Re­gional Growth.

The Shire was one of 16 suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cants out of 300 in the first round and in­vited to sub­mit a full busi­ness case.

The funds would be used to buy 2.5ha of land in the precinct and for con­struc­tion of com­mon-use in­fra­struc­ture, in­clud­ing re­search fa­cil­i­ties, cold stor­age, ware­hous­ing, pack­ag­ing and dis­tri­bu­tion and in­cu­ba­tor space.

An En­ter­prise Devel­op­ment Sup­port Pro­gram will also be es­tab­lished to help with en­trepreneurial train­ing and ac­cess to ex­port mar­kets and devel­op­ment fi­nance.

Shire Pres­i­dent David Bolt said the precinct was a cat­a­lyst for the con­di­tion­ing of the next gen­er­a­tion into a highly skilled work­force to sat­isfy job re­quire­ments.

About 186 di­rect and in­di­rect jobs would be cre­ated.
