Business Liaison Group

North East Link Project (NELP) has established a Bulleen Industrial Zone (BIZ) Liaison Group (BLG) as an avenue for BIZ involvement in North East Link’s planning and approvals phase (2019).

The group seeks to advance the interests and preparedness of the BIZ in relation to the issues and challenges posed by North East Link by:

  • Involving business representatives in addressing issues of concern to the precinct and to work with NELP and other parties towards suitable outcomes
  • Establishing effective communication and consultation arrangements between its members
  • Providing a local perspective, particularly in relation to minimising business impacts
  • Assisting to identify local opportunities and issues
  • Assisting in resolving business concerns where possible.


The BLG is independently chaired by Mike Marasco, and membership includes:

  • BIZ executive committee
  • BIZ business owners
  • BIZ property owners
  • BIZ executive committee nominees
  • Manningham City Council
  • Whitehorse City Council
  • NELP representatives
