The ILA will take responsibility for existing general industrial projects and strategic industrial areas across WA
Future Direction – Land Agency Reform
- After acknowledging our 25-year anniversary in July 2017, the second half of the 2017-18 year focused on enacting land agency reform changes and planning to merge with the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority under a single operating model.
- A chairman and board in common led by George McCullagh, are overseeing this land agency reform process.
- Part of this process involved the creation of the Industrial Lands Authority (ILA), a dedicated body that will initially sit within the LandCorp business.
- The ILA will take responsibility for existing general industrial projects and strategic industrial areas across WA, including, among others, the Western Trade Coast, Gap Ridge in Karratha, Kemerton in Bunbury and Peel Business Park in Nambeelup.
