Onslow guide out­lines the area’s busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties

Pilbara News - - Business - Tom Zaun­mayr

The Onslow Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try has re­leased a com­pre­hen­sive doc­u­ment out­lin­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for busi­ness ven­tures in and around town.

The Onslow Busi­ness In­vest­ment Guide pro­vides an overview of the town’s cur­rent, pend­ing and plau­si­ble in­dus­try and busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties and as­so­ci­ated op­por­tu­ni­ties and ser­vices, plus the in­fra­struc­ture avail­able to sup­port busi­ness de­vel­op­ment in the area.

OCCI pres­i­dent Ge­off Her­bert said Onslow was still grow­ing, while other ar­eas in the Pil­bara slowed.

“Onslow is in a great po­si­tion,” he said. “De­vel­op­ment of the Ash­bur­ton North Strate­gic In­dus­trial Area has acted as a cat­a­lyst by pro­vid­ing in­dus­trial space and high-level reg­u­la­tory ap­provals re­quired for large-scale projects.

“In Onslow it­self, ac­com­mo­da­tion is avail­able and af­ford­able, pub­lic ameni­ties are great, the cli­mate and en­vi­ron­ment at­trac­tive and there are di­rect flights to and from Perth.”

Op­por­tu­ni­ties out­lined in the guide in­clude con­struc­tion of a new 19-pen ma­rina, a marine sup­port base, new pool and skate park and con­struc­tion of hous­ing.

Pil­bara De­vel­op­ment Com­mis­sion act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive Terry Hill said the OCCI had shown great lead­er­ship and ini­tia­tive in de­vel­op­ing the in­vest­ment guide.

“This in­vest­ment guide is a great ac­com­pa­ni­ment to the Pil­bara Re­gional In­vest­ment Blue­print and delves a lit­tle deeper into the trans­for­ma­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties that will see Onslow con­tinue to grow and di­ver­sify,” he said.

Copies of the guide are avail­able in hard copy from the OCCI or on­line at www.on­slowcci.com.au.
