More information on the Anketell SIA can be found below.
The Anketell SIA is located 30km east of Karratha, 10km west of Wickham and 9km northwest of Roebourne in Western Australia.
Karratha is located approximately 1,400km north of Perth.
The total Anketell Project area including the port, industrial areas, multi-user infrastructure corridors and buffers is 6,744ha.
The Anketell SIA is 1,250ha, including 1,000ha for heavy or strategic industrial use and 250ha for general industrial use.
The Anketell SIA is currently Crown land.
As the land in the SIA is required by proponents, land will be transferred to LandCorp in freehold ownership and leased to proponents.
The Anketell SIA is located within the City of Karratha.
The City's Town Planning Scheme No.8 recognises the Anketell Project as the Cape Lambert Precinct with a core area zoned 'Strategic Industrial' and an 'Industry Buffer' special control area zoned 'Rural'.
To proceed with the detailed planning of the Anketell SIA, an Improvement Plan / Improvement Scheme is being prepared.
Sustainability principles will be considered during the preparation of the Improvement Plan / Improvement Scheme for the SIA.
LandCorp is currently conducting environmental studies to support the Improvement Plan / Improvement Scheme approach, including field surveys to determine flora and fauna significance and water management considerations. Once all studies are completed an Environmental Summary Report will be completed for the Improvement Plan/Improvement Scheme.
The Anketell SIA is a remote site with no current services. It is likely that proponents will need to service their own sites or enter into arrangements with nearby service providers but this will be further investigated as a part of the Improvement Plan/Improvement Scheme process.
The Anketell Project area is the subject of the Native Title determination FCA 536 which held that the Ngarluma People hold non-exclusive native title over the area.
The State and Ngarluma People have finalised an Indigenous Land Use Agreement for the future use of the Anketell SIA.
The Department of Aboriginal Affairs Information Service records 72 sites across the wider Anketell Project, including a number of sites within the Heavy Industrial Areas.
A comprehensive Aboriginal heritage survey will be conducted across the SIA to help guide future development as part of the Improvement Plan/Improvement Scheme.
All ground disturbing activities within the Anketell SIA likely to disturb an Aboriginal heritage site will be subject to the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (WA).
There are no known European heritage sites in the Anketell SIA.
