Kemerton General Industrial Area

Closed 22 Mar 2022

Opened 16 Mar 2022


DevelopmentWA proposes to subdivide Lot 40 (No. 217) Devlin Road, Wellesley (Shire of Harvey) into approximately 34 lots to facilitate future industrial development. Areas of the Marriott Road reserve (Lots 41 & 42) are also proposed to be cleared to facilitate the safe movement of vehicles to and from the site and for upgrading of electrical services.

The proposal would include a total development envelope of 119 hectares, including proposed clearing of up to 27.1 hectares of native vegetation and fauna habitat.

The proposal area contains the Banksia Woodlands of the Swan Coastal Plain Priority Ecological Community (priority 3 (P3) under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016,) and is habitat for Commonwealth and State listed threatened black cockatoo species.

The proposal contains a portion of the conservation category wetland mapped over the Wellesley River, which runs adjacent to the eastern boundary of the proposal area.

Why your views matter

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
