Homemaker heaven on way for lo­cals

Pilbara News - - Opinion - Peter Long Peter Long is the City of Kar­ratha Mayor.

You might have no­ticed work on the south side of the Dampier High­way near 7-Mile Creek and ad­ja­cent the Civeo Camp.

This is the Gap Ridge Homemaker Cen­tre which is an area for bulky goods re­tail­ers.

This is a type of de­vel­op­ment com­mon in Perth with huge shops and am­ple park­ing — where mum, dad and the kids wan­der from store to store on week­ends look­ing for fur­ni­ture and white­goods.

Coun­cil ap­proved two new road names for the Homemaker Cen­tre at its last meet­ing — Cor­ringer Av­enue and Melford Road — and the ground works are now rapidly near­ing com­ple­tion.

This new es­tate will be ac­cessed from Madi­gan Road and will be de­vel­oped in stages.

The as­phalt has just been laid for stage 1 and fu­ture stages will ex­pand west to­wards the Creek and the ex­ist­ing Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion fa­cil­ity.

LandCorp has re­ceived ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est to de­velop blocks of land in this area from Spot­light, BCF, God­freys, Repco, Pet­shack and oth­ers.

This is an ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ment for our city and we are look­ing for­ward to a range of new re­tail op­por­tu­ni­ties for our com­mu­nity.

More in­for­ma­tion is avail­able on the LandCorp web site at www.landcorp.com.au/In­dus­trial-and-Com­mer­cial/Gap-RidgeHomemaker-Cen­tre.
