Servicing of the Kemerton Strategic Industrial Area (KSIA)
BGEA considers that the KSIA can play a pivotal role in the continued economic development of the Bunbury Geographe region. With other heavy industrial parks such as Kwinana reaching capacity, there is great opportunity for attracting new industries to the KSIA.
Unfortunately, the KSIA has a long history of not having the basic services, infrastructure and approvals to make it attractive for further investment. Additional power supply is a particular constraint.
For several years BGEA has been advocating for further investment in the KSIA.
Recent progress has been made in commencement of environmental approvals, planning for main access road upgrades and designs for additional power supply, however it is now critical that these Projects are funded and delivered in a reasonable timeframe. BGEA will continue to advocate for these upgrades and looks forward to being able to promote the KSIA as a world class “shovel ready” facility.
