Client: Goodman Australia

Location: Hazelmere, WA

Cost of Development: $60 million


Goodman Australia appointed Rowe Group to obtain Planning Approval for a master planned industrial complex in the Hazelmere Industrial Precinct. The complex, situated on a 33 hectare site , is a high quality development within this established industrial precinct.

The development contains a mix of transport logistics, warehouse\distribution and light industrial land uses. It consists of purpose-built tenant facilities, with the largest warehouse exceeding 40,000m2 in area.

Gaining approval for the development was a challenging process due to several site constraints. This included appropriate management of on-site effluent disposal and stormwater because of the site’s proximity to sensitive environmental receptors, including Helena River and wetland areas.

In addition to the physical constraints, the site is included within a Planning Control Area and is subject to a Clause 32 Resolution under the Metropolitan Region Scheme. This necessitated the requirement to seek approvals from both the City of Swan and WA Planning Commission, adding an extra layer of complexity to the approvals.An Aboriginal Heritage Site exists on the subject site, which also required approval for the development under the Aboriginal Heritage Act.

The development required the preparation of a Structure Plan under the City’s Local Planning Scheme to guide the built form outcome for the site. However, by advocating a master planned and integrated approach to development, we were able to successfully negotiate with the City and the WA Planning Commission to secure approval of the development in the absence of a structure plan, resulting in an expedited development timeframe for our client.

As part of this process, we represented our Client at the State Administrative Tribunal and assisted in facilitating a Section 18 Consent under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972.

The complex is now completed and houses a number of national and multi-national tenants including Coca-Cola Amatil, Toll IPE and Linfox.
