THE Peel Business Park is expected to create about 2000 jobs in the Peel region after a local civil contractor was appointed to start works for Stage one at the Peel
Business Park in Nambeelup.
Development WA’s Industrial Lands Authority (ILA) has appointed Peel-based civil contractor Wormall Civil to complete Stage One. With the trunk, underground
power works and the first stage of earthworks recently completed, the focus is now on the $13 million civil works.
This includes subdivision works, road and service upgrades and downstream drainage upgrades for the park.
Development WA chief executive Frank Marra said these works would ensure the creation of titled lots for the first stage, enabling lot purchasers to start their developments and the early activation of the Business Park.
“During construction, the park is expected to create more than 300 jobs with a further 160 permanent operational workforce jobs for the Peel region once the
first stage is fully operational,” he said.
“Once fully completed, the Peel Business Park is expected to create around 2000 local jobs and inject about $1 billion into the State’s economy each year.
“All lots will be fully serviced with gas, water, wastewater and NBN.
“Purchasers will also be able to enjoy significant savings on energy bills by connecting to the Park’s renewable energy Industrial Microgrid.”
Wormall civil corporate advisor Mike Mulhall said the company was delighted to continue working with the ILA on the project.
Mr Marra said the business park was proving popular, with currently only three lots available for purchase in the first stage. ILA is taking further registrations of interest for the second stage.
Peel Business Park is the catalyst for the Transform Peel initiative which aims to create 33,000 new jobs in the region by 2050.
The project is led by the Peel Development Commission and supported by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program.
