Pilbara News - - News - Tay­lar Amonini

The Pil­bara Cities ini­tia­tive has been la­belled a “re­mark­able suc­cess”.

Mem­ber for the Min­ing and Pas­toral Re­gion Jac­qui Boy­dell said in Par­lia­ment last week there had been a trans­for­ma­tion of towns with new hous­ing, im­proved health­care, so­cial and com­mu­nity in­fra­struc­ture and busi­ness de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties since its in­tro­duc­tion in 2009.

“Kar­ratha, Port Hed­land, Tom Price and Parabur­doo were ini­tially es­tab­lished through min­ing com­pany obli­ga­tions out­lined in State Agree­ments, but it is clear there had been no sig­nif­i­cant new in­vest­ment from those min­ing com­pa­nies for many decades,” she said.
