Call for industrial lands strategy review

IN welcoming the creation of the Industrial Lands Authority (ILA), the Property Council of Australia WA has called on the new agency to review WA’s industrial lands strategy.

Property Council of Australia WA executive director Lino Iacomella said now that the Industrial Lands Authority (ILA) was in place the property industry was looking for better integration of WA’s industrial land planning with other major state programs like Westport, WA’s freight logistics planning and the promised Infrastructure WA.

“The industrial land strategy is almost 10-years-old, but it has always struggled to get high-level support in government for infrastructure to support the strategy’s goals of ensuring supplies of suitably serviced industrial land for the needs of industry,’’ he said.

“The creation of the ILA is an opportunity to refocus the industrial land strategy for the needs of industry after the mining boom. 

“The property council welcomes the ILA’s objectives to fast-track industrial development and streamline approvals for major employment projects.’’

The McGowan Government said the formation of the ILA was a key element of the reform of the state’s land agencies. 

It will operate under the Western Australian Land Authority Act, be overseen by a steering committee, headed by the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation director general and implemented through Western Australian Land Authority (LandCorp) resourcing.
