MESSAGE FROM THE CEO
Western Australia is in the midst of a dynamic shift in the structure of its State economy, due to the sustained strength of the resources sector. The North West Corridor of Perth also continues to be one of the fastest growing areas in Australia, which also creates great opportunity.
Geographically located approximately 53 kilometres from Perth CBD and strategically located between the Indian Ocean and the Yanchep National Park, the new city centre of Yanchep (SunCity at Yanchep) will emerge as possibly the only sustainable Clean Green Community in a strategic regional city centre within a metropolitan area in Australia.
Taking advantage of its proximity to the coast, SunCity at Yanchep will be one of the regions most exciting sustainable developments, anchoring the North West Corridor and providing a hub of excellence for knowledge based industries. It also has potential to support the requirements of the mining and resource growth occuring in the northwest of this state.
Quality long term job creation is held by the public and private sectors as an elusive goal. In the wider context of the North West Corridor of Perth, it is one of the biggest challenges for the next decade or two.
Historic low rates of self-sufficiency and local job containment have proven to be a weakness for the north.
