The Waterloo Industrial Park District Structure Plan sets the key planning principles and provides guidance on future staging of industrial development in Waterloo.
The Waterloo Industrial Park area covers 1350 hectares and has the potential to be a major employment hub generating jobs for over 4500 people. Future uses for the park could include light industry, general industry, service commercial, a special use area designated for rail related activities, agricultural food processing precinct, and public purpose – infrastructure services.
Waterloo will provide employment opportunities for the urban redevelopment area of Wanju immediately to the north.
Major advantages for Waterloo is its proximity to the Bunbury Port which is only 11 kilometres away and its connections to rail and road infrastructure. The new Bunbury Outer Ring Road alignment will run through the centre of Waterloo providing access to Perth and the lower South West.
The Greater Bunbury Region Scheme and the Shire of Dardanup’s Local Planning Scheme will be updated to reflect the new Waterloo Industrial Park District Structure Plan.
