Grylls launches Broome North packages

The state government says it is delivering on its promise to meet demand for land in the Kimberley, with the release of 50 house and land packages at Waranyjarri Estate tomorrow, part of the new residential development, Broome North.

Lands Minister Brendon Grylls said house and land packages, which will be released by LandCorp tomorrow, would start at $419,414.

"The 50 house and land packages will be offered by private treaty and will provide a staggering array of housing styles and choices never before offered in the Kimberley," Mr Grylls said.

"In addition, purchasers will be able to claim a combined rebate of up to $32,470 made up of the Federal Government's Housing Affordability Fund, the First Homeowners Grant and a landscaping rebate from Landcorp."

Mr Grylls said a group of eight builders had been selected to deliver the packarges: Brolga Developments, Colin Wilkinson Developments, Australian Eco Construction, William Homes, H&M Tracey, Niche Q, BGC Modular and Summit Homes.

He said the builders were chosen based on responsive housing designs for the Broome climate, quality of deign and value.

Mr Grylls said there were also opportunities for people to build on their own land with an additional 38 lots remaining from the first land release late last year.

The 38 single lots, ranging in size from 423sqm to 814sqm, are priced from $130,000. Rebates of up to $32,470 are also available on the lots.

"There is an expectation this second land release will generate a lot of interest from investors who are looking to enter the rental market," the Minister said.

"The combined house and land packages and lots will be available to all potential purchasers and will provide more choice for owner occupiers and investors wanting to enter the highly regarded Broome market."
