RPS was commission by LandCorp to undertake the town planning and urban design for a major strategic industrial estate in the Pilbara.
As a project of significance for the State, the Government has initiated proposals for a deepwater port along with a major strategic industrial area to help deliver benefits to the Western Australian and national economies, create employment opportunities and bolster the State’s export capabilities.
RPS was engaged to undertake the planning work necessary to facilitate the subsequent subdivision and development of industrial land in proximity to the proposed Anketell Port. This involves assessing site specific development opportunities and constraints for four industrial areas. From this, design concepts are prepared and a statutory planning framework established utilising the Improvement Plan and Improvement Scheme methodology.
