FARM ONLINE | Geelong port development opposed by growers, industry

Grain grower groups, state farmer organisations and agribusiness GrainCorp have teamed up to oppose a proposed development at the Port of Geelong.

The Hamilton Group has lodged an application for a $30 million seven-storey mixed use development next to GrainCorp's bulk grain terminal on Mackey St.

Grain Producers Australia southern director Andrew Weidemann said the united front from producers and industry showed there was widespread opposition to the development.

"Grain Producers Australia, GrainGrowers and the VFF have all united to urge the Victorian Government, to oppose this inappropriate development at the Geelong Port, which threatens grain exports," he said.
