Funding to benefit south-west

Two separate State Government funding initiatives are set to benefit areas of the south-west.
To help address an acute shortage of industrial land in the Peel region, the Government has committed $250,000 for the development of a 100-lot Commonage Industrial Park subdivision in Pinjarra.
The grant issued under the Carpenter Government's Regional Headworks Program (RHP) is also hoped to act as a catalyst for increased economic growth in the region.
The Pinjarra development is part of $1.5 million in grants for regional Western Australia, funded under the RHP, announced since December last year.
RHP grants are on offer for essential services such as water, electricity, telecommunications and gas to organisations undertaking commercial or industrial projects in regional areas.
The funds provided through the RHP are part of the State Government's $80million Regional Investment Fund (RIF).
Meanwhile, several key housing construction projects have begun in Yarloop, Brunswick and Collie.
The projects to replace or refurbish old Homeswest properties are funded through the State Government's Regional Upgrade Strategy.
Properties which are of fibro construction and are over 40 years of age in regional areas of the state are targets for the upgrade project, with about 200 houses around WA replaced each year.
