Our Invest Assist Services

These may include development approvals process, statutory approvals, as well as site, infrastructure and utilities requirements. 

Our Invest Assist team ensures an efficient approach to doing business in Victoria by creating and maintaining networks both within Government and the private sector, saving you time and money.

Specialist advice on the development approvals process

We can help your team to understand the development approvals process in Victoria and provide specific advice on licence and permit requirements for your project.

Statutory approvals coordination

We provide coordination of the full range of state, commonwealth and local government approvals, facilitating negotiations with the relevant government agencies. Assistance is provided with planning, development, environmental, health and safety approvals and other regulatory controls.

Site identification service

A free-of-charge site selection service is offered by Invest Assist to investors seeking properties for industrial, commercial or retail operations.  We use our extensive networks to identify greenfield or existing site options based on your specific business requirements.  Whether seeking to invest in metropolitan or provincial Victoria, site options will be tailored to your needs.

Advice on infrastructure and utility services

We provide information on the provision and cost of access to business infrastructure, including access to electricity, gas, water and transport. Where appropriate, specialist expertise will be sought to meet your requirements.

An independent review of Invest Assist services by PricewaterhouseCoopers showed that the coordination of government approvals is a key benefit to business. These facilitation services result in time and money savings, in particular through reduced holding costs on land and other assets of businesses.
