State plans to double industrial output

The state government says it wants to nearly double the output of the metropolitan area's most important industrial precincts, including the Kwinana and Rockingham industrial zones, and Latitude 32 and the Australian Marine Complex in Henderson.

Another pie in the sky idea to help the industrial sector. It took me three years to get issued a building licence for an industrial shed in the AMC Henderson. It is tough enough competing against imported product and a resources sector unwilling to utilise local companies, but ridiculous design requirements for industrial sheds by idealist architects combined with laborious procedural delays in develoment and planning approvals results in many local companies just giving up on an upgrade. Landcorp and the various local councils just cover the same ground and prolong the whole process. How can the need to include six bicycle racks (covered ofcourse!) at an industrial site on our drawings cause a 4 week delay in approval? Offshore competitors probably approve and build entire complexes in the same timeframe! Industrial death by a thousand pens.
