Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area

The Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area (ANSIA) is located 12 kilometres south of the Onslow town site in the Shire of Ashburton.

The Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area (ANSIA) is located 12 kilometres south of the Onslow town site in the Shire of Ashburton.

The statutory land use planning framework is provided by:

  • Improvement Plan No. 41: Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area
  • Improvement Scheme No. 1: Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area

Improvement Plan No. 41: Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area authorised the making of Improvement Scheme No. 1: Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area.

Improvement Scheme No. 1 was gazetted on 30 September 2016. The scheme is now operational and replaces the Shire of Ashburton’s Town Planning Scheme No. 7 as the land use planning instrument for the ANSIA.

The objectives of the scheme are:

  • to create a strategic industrial estate comprising major hydrocarbon processing industries and synergistic services and/or facilities with viable port access
  • ensure the safe and efficient use of land for the long-term industrial development of a strategic industrial area of regional, state and national significance
  • to provide an internationally competitive industrial estate that offers a layout designed to facilitate and encourage industry synergies, functional transport links and where possible, the sharing of infrastructure networks and corridors
  • to minimise and mitigate adverse impacts on the surrounding land, the terrestrial and marine environment, and the Onslow community
  • to ensure the appropriate separation and layout of land uses through appropriate internal and external buffers to prevent incompatible or conflicting land uses.

Implementation

The finalisation of the scheme means that the Western Australian Planning Commission is now the responsible authority for the assessment of development applications.

The scheme text, including the Guide Plan (Appendix 1), sets out:

  • the planning framework for the estate
  • zones and use of land
  • general development requirements
  • requirement for development approval
  • applications for development approval
  • procedure for dealing with applications for development approval
  • bushfire risk management
  • enforcement and administration.
