UP TO $6m AVAILABLE FOR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT IN NORTHAM
 
In order to further grow and diversify industry in the area, the Shire of Northam proactively works with the State Government and industry to develop a robust, flexible and adaptable local economy. The Shire of Northam is also an active member of the Regional Capitals Alliance Western Australia, working collaboratively with the nine other regional capitals of Western Australia to support our communities and economies.
 
As part of this proactive approach, the Shire of Northam has established the Industry Attraction Fund (IAF). The IAF has been established to incentivise business development and economic growth within the Shire of Northam. It is part of a suite of initiatives devised by the Shire of Northam to build on the area’s existing competitive advantages, intended to strengthen and diversify the local economy and support long-term jobs growth.
 
The Shire has identified a number of priority sectors based on synergies with existing industry, and/or alignment with strategic priorities; these are:
 
- Agriculture and Agri-Innovation;
- Freight and Logistics;
- Aviation;
- Tourism;
- Manufacturing & Professional Services;
- Education & Training;
- Utilities & Waste Services;
 
applications from other industries are welcomed where the project can demonstrate the capacity to deliver on the Industry Attraction Fund objectives.
 
In addition, expressions of interest are also being accepted for the WA Government Investment Attraction Fund from a range of industries that align with WA's priority sectors, details of which can be found on the Shire of Northam website or via the link below.
