LONGERENONG College will develop a master plan for its campus and commercial farm with State Government funding.
The agricultural college will focus on attracting businesses to the property after receiving $28,000 through the Regional Growth Fund's Putting Locals First program.
College manager John Goldsmith said the plan would help co-ordinate organisations that ran business or research projects from the 1070-hectare campus and commercial farm.
He said Bayer CropScience was joining the Country Fire Authority and Department of Primary Industries on the property this year.
"The master plan is something we have been thinking about doing for a while and now it is possible," he said.
"It has been somewhat instigated by having Bayer come to the property and as we grow we need to make sure we do it in a co-ordinated manner.
"I think the major benefit is making sure that we attract the right sort of co-tenants so that all organisations that are on site benefit.
"Bayer, for example, is a logical fit because they do agricultural research and our students are able to access that research and learn from it."
Member for Lowan, Hugh Delahunty said a specialist consultant would provide WorkCo, the administrator of Longerenong College, a report to assist site planning and development.
He said the plan would benefit both the college's students and education throughout the region.
"The master plan will ensure that infrastructure funding is used in a manner that helps achieve long-term infrastructure goals and objectives," he said.
"The plan will also inform planning and other considerations relating to proposed developments in the future, providing accurate strategic data to WorkCo, current and future tenants, Horsham Rural City Council and the state and federal governments."
The master plan is due to be completed in May.
