In Brief: Northam industrial park expansion

THE supply of industrial land in Western Australia is set for a further boost following the start of siteworks on stage two of the Avon Industrial Park, near Northam. The start of work on stage two by WA-based company Brierty Contractors was announced last week by Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan and Mid-West and Wheatbelt Minister Kim Chance. The project will involve the construction of a two-kilometre road extension and installation of water and electricity, telephone and fencing. It follows conditional approval by the WA Planning Commission earlier this month. Ms MacTiernan said stage two comprised 57 hectares and would deliver 17 lots ranging in size from 5,500 square metres to 12.5ha and averaging 3.3ha, which were expected to be ready for sale in mid-2008. “The state government committed $4 million to the Avon Industrial Park project last September in response to demand for land and growth in WA’s booming economy,” she said. “Many of the lots in stage two will be considerably larger than traditional Perth industrial offerings, therefore meeting the needs of business which have requested larger lots for their operations.”
