Shotts Strategic Industrial Area

Strategic industrial land in the South West of Western Australia.

The Shotts Strategic Industrial Area (Shotts SIA) is located 7.5km east of Collie and has been created to attract and support large scale industries which will grow Collie and the region. Among other downstream processin industries, the area is suitable for energy and coal production and potentially heavy industrial use.

The Shotts SIA is strategically positioned between the Muja Power Station and the Bluewaters Power Station, existing infrastructure, supply connections, and associated coal mines.

Land is available for long term lease.

The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI) is the lead agency for the development of the Shotts SIA and LandCorp is the estate manager.

The process for land allocation in the Shotts SIA is set out in the Proponent Land Allocation Flowchart

Proponents intending to locate in the Shotts SIA will be required to submit a Business Case to DSD and LandCorp.

1. Location

The Shotts SIA is located 7.5km east of the Collie town site in Western Australia's Collie Basin.

Collie is situated 47km from Bunbury (approximately 45 minute drive) and 200km south of Perth (approximately 2 hour drive).

2. Land Tenure

The Shotts SIA has a net developable area of 210ha over five development sites.

LandCorp owns freehold titles for all five of the development areas in the Shotts SIA.

3. Planning

The Shotts SIA is located within the boundaries of the Shire of Collie.

Under the Shire's Local Planning Scheme No. 5 (LPS5), the Shotts SIA is designated as 'Special Use Zone No. 11 – Shotts Industrial Park and Structure Plan Area – SPA No.1' for the purposes of activities associated with coal mining. To support a broader range of downstream processing industries which would value-add to the Shotts SIA and the region's resources a review of the structure plan is currently being considered.

In 2010 the Shotts SIA Structure Plan was approved by the Western Australian Planning Commission, and sets out the various land uses.  

It is supported by the Structure Plan Report.

4. Sustainability

Our commitment to sustainable development is underpinned by the Western Australia Land Authority Act (1992) which requires us to take account of and balance social, economic and environmental outcomes.

LandCorp defines sustainable development as comprising four elements: environmental responsibility, community wellbeing, design excellence and economic health. While our Act underpins our commitment to sustainability, requiring us to take account of and balance social, economic and environmental outcomes, we see the elements as the essential framework for how we can work to realise the potential of land and property development. In this way, sustainable development is a critical part to the way we approach projects.

5. Environment

The Shotts SIA Structure Plan has been developed to manage and protect ecological water systems, native vegetation and manage potential pollution emissions, air quality and noise levels.

The Shotts SIA land area also has a 3km buffer to ensure that air and noise pollution will not affect incompatible land uses. This is supported by the land zoning and Shotts SIA Structure Plan.

6. Services

The Shotts SIA is strategically positioned between the Muja Power Station, the Bluewaters Power Station, existing water, power, road and rail infrastructure and associated coal mines.

Proponents requiring significant services may be required to provide those services on-site or extend service infrastructure to their sites. 

7. Native Title

A Native Title Agreement has been agreed which clears Native Title and allows development to occur within the Shotts SIA.

Future proponents will be required to comply with any related obligations under the Native Title Agreement as part of their lease.

8. Aboriginal Heritage

An Aboriginal Heritage survey has been undertaken and no sites of significance were recorded at the site.

9. European Heritage

Several locations on the eastern side of the Shotts SIA contain European historical remains indicative of the town-site but do not constrain development on the created lots. No buildings remain in the area with only some evidence of foundations and roads.
