The Victorian Government is seeking private sector investment to assist in boosting plantation timber supply in Gippsland.

Expressions of Interest are open for experienced and capable plantation investors, developers and managers who are interested in expanding their plantation forestry portfolio in a manner that is sensitive to environmental and community values and creates jobs.

Successful respondents to the Expressions of Interest process will contribute to informing design of the program, ahead of a final competitive program application process.

Interested parties will need to respond to the Expressions of Interest Guidelines providing detailed evidence to support their claims of capital contribution, plantation development experience and responsible and sustainable forest management.

The Expression of Interest Guidelines can be accessed via the Buying for Victoria portal.

The Expression of Interest process closed on Friday 6 November 2020.
