WesterN Edge Opportunity Now CLOSED
Expression of interest are now closed for a developer with vision to create the Western Edge Residential Master Planned Community in South Hedland.
Comprising potentially 226ha in area, the Land has been identified as having the capacity over time to deliver 2,280 lots, a local commercial centre and accommodation to support a possible
University/tertiary education campus. The potential also exists to use part of the land, at least in its early stages, for a service worker accommodation camp before being transitioned into a retirement lifestyle village.
The delivery of quality and affordable family housing to meet the continued demand of a permanent population are essential expectations of the selected successful Proponent.
If you have any queries relating to the project please contact Ian Ardron, Project Manager, LandCorp on 9482 7499.
The current State Government of Western Australia introduced the “Royalties for Regions” initiative with the aim of ensuring a portion of the royalty proceeds from the resources sector is channelled back into regional Western Australia.
The November 2009 launch of the State Government’s Pilbara Cities vision, being “to build vibrant cities that offer economic and social sustainability from one generation to the next; places that
people will choose to live on a permanent and intergenerational basis, with quality accommodation and services in line with other major Australian cities,” marked a major turning point.
The ambitious Pilbara Cities Project aims to see Port Hedland (including South Hedland) being transformed into a vibrant regional city with a population of approximately 50,000. With the help of the State Government’s Royalties for Regions scheme, $77 million is now dedicated to the South Hedland Town Centre project. South Hedland’s Town Centre will have a unique identity and become a more dynamic, accessible and inclusive urban place at the heart of the community and from which to build the Western Edge development.
On 23 May 2012 Town of Port Hedland adopted their Port City Growth Plan. The Port City Growth Plan provides the strategic blue print for development to achieve a city of 50,000 people. The Western Edge is identified in the growth plan for development.
