Judges: Bayn­ton West a ‘wel­com­ing oa­sis’

Pilbara News - - News -

Bayn­ton West has been named the best residential de­vel­op­ment over 250 lots in the WA Ur­ban De­vel­op­ment In­sti­tute of Aus­tralia Awards for Ex­cel­lence. Land­Corp chief ex­ec­u­tive Frank Marra said the sub­urb was quickly de­vel­op­ing into a vi­brant and di­verse neigh­bour­hood.

“Just five years ago, the only op­tion for many in Kar­ratha was to live in a donga camp or sleep in some­one’s liv­ing room,” he said.

“Along­side projects de­liv­ered by the pri­vate sec­tor in Kar­ratha, Bayn­ton West has been a ma­jor con­trib­u­tor in al­le­vi­at­ing the town’s hous­ing short­age.

“We were pleased the judges re­ferred to the de­vel­op­ment as a “wel­com­ing oa­sis,” as this recog­nised our com­mit­ment to pro­vide the com­mu­nity with the same fea­tures regularly seen in metropoli­tan area es­tates.”

Mr Marra said the sub­urb had pro­vided eco­nomic ben­e­fits to Kar­ratha such as a new pri­mary school, fam­ily cen­tre and work for lo­cal busi­nesses.
