First fam­i­lies move into new Onslow de­vel­op­ment

Pilbara News - - News -

Onslow’s Bar­rarda Es­tate is be­gin­ning to come to life as the first fam­i­lies move into the 220-lot de­vel­op­ment.

Last month the first five res­i­den­tial Chevron fam­i­lies made the move into the es­tate.

Chevron has pur­chased 50 homes in Bar­rarda, with 15 fin­ished and the re­main­ing 35 ex­pected to be com­pleted early next year.

Chevron com­mu­nity en­gage­ment su­per­vi­sor Erin Glancy was one of the first five to move into the area.

“Our kids love play­ing in the back­yard and have al­ready been tak­ing full ad­van­tage of the swim­ming pool,” she said.

“I'm look­ing for­ward to the new Chevron res­i­dents be­com­ing ac­tive mem­bers of the Onslow com­mu­nity.

“The town is con­tin­u­ing to re­alise ben­e­fits from the Chevron­op­er­ated Wheat­stone Project, with th­ese im­prove­ments con­tribut­ing to the over­all vi­brancy and sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment of the town.”

Chevron’s mod­u­lar homes were con­structed in Perth by McGrath Homes and driven up to Onslow.

The State Gov­ern­ment has bought 10 sites in Bar­rarda to add to its Gov­ern­ment Re­gional Of­fice Hous­ing port­fo­lio.

The Shire of Ash­bur­ton has bought three lots.
