Future plans - Wattelup/Hope Valley project in EPA’s court

THE success of the Canning Vale development over the past three decades has encouraged several other local councils to look at similar proposals for their area, among them Hope Valley/Wattelup.

The Hope Valley Wattelup Redevelopment covers 1,250 hectares and will ultimately cater for transport-related industry, general industry, eco industry/ business park, resource recovery, commercial and rural.

Completion of the draft master plan for the redevelopment project is expected by the end of November.

The development’s proximity to Kwinana means that the Environmental Protection Authority has restricted residential growth, and the State Government has been buying land in the area in anticipation of the industrial redevelopment.

When completed the project is expected to provide 10,000 jobs, maximising the advantages of being located close to the Kwinana Industrial Area. 

Similar to Canning Vale, the redevelopment will aim to allow for purpose-built precincts where business can benefit from other operations of a similar commercial nature.

The master plan is currently with the EPA, from where it may be amended, and then passed on to the Western Australian Planning Commission.
