Planning scheme amendment paves way for local jobs in Peel region
Wednesday 11 March 2020
Changes to the Peel Region Scheme will provide a pipeline of serviced industrial land and ensure the region continues to adapt to new economic opportunities.
Planning Minister Rita Saffioti announced her support for an amendment to the Peel Region Scheme to rezone 378 hectares of land within the Shire of Murray from rural to industrial use, providing for future production, business and employment opportunities.
A second scheme amendment to rezone a further 201 hectares of land has also been approved, expanding the existing Peel Business Park in Nambeelup to a total of 870 hectares.
The rezoned areas sit north east of Mandurah, on either side of the Murrayfield airpark, and are easily accessible from both the Kwinana Freeway and South West Highway with links to local port facilities and future major road corridors.
These amendments deliver on a long-term vision to expand the Peel Business Park and will be further progressed through the development of a local planning scheme and structure plan by the Shire of Murray.
