Western Trade Coast open for industrial development

The Western Australia government has announced new zones for manufacturers.

Across two areas, the Rockingham Industrial Zone, and Latitude 32 Industry Zone, the sites will provide space for a range of businesses to leverage connections from Australia to China and Southeast Asia.

“The Western Trade Coast is a development which underlines WA’s reputation as the ‘engine room of the nation’,” said WA Premier, Mark McGowan.

At Rockingham, there are 11 lots ranging in size from 4,399sqm to 2.8252ha.

In the Latitude 32 Industry Zone, the sites are split between the Hope Valley Road area and the Flinders Precinct, with the largest 24,908sqm and the smallest 6,000sqm.

The Industrial Lands Authority (ILA) oversees the development of these areas, and according to a statement from McGowan and Lands Minister, Ben Wyatt, hopes to lead to $162 million in investment.

“The Industrial Lands Authority develops land for jobs, and is the commercial bridge between private sector developers and the McGowan Government – facilitating the partnerships that spark growth opportunities in our economy,” said Wyatt.

“All of the lots being released this week offer strong arterial connectivity to major transport routes, great proximity to local employment bases and design guidelines that ensure the estates are of the highest quality,” said Wyatt.
