The Kurilpa plan is dead. The new Labor Planning Minister, Jackie Trad, has killed it.

Now that Trad has sent the plan back to the drawing board, the city council must develop a new master plan for the region. Parmalat, and other local blue-collar legacy industries, have already begun planning to move out.
What will take their place?
