"To promote the sustainable social and economic development of Port Hedland and advocate for improved community facilities and services."

Town of Port Hedland

The Town has also undertaken several new initiatives that are aimed at fast-tracking land release and development within the Town, such as:

 1.         The Town’s Land Rationalisation Plan: This plan identifies all vacant land within both Port and South Hedland and discusses the opportunities that exist for land development at each site.  

 2.         Planning for the New Spoil Bank Precinct and the Pretty Pool Development:  Both highly attractive development sites, of which Council endorsed its preferred concept designs earlier this year, as the precursor to the release of various land parcels in these areas throughout 2010.   

 3.         Establishing a new Economic and Land Development Department:  As economic growth within the town is closely linked to the ready availability of developable land, the primary focus of this new team is on working closely with government and developers to streamline the land availability and development approvals processes. 

If you’re interested in speaking to one of our new staff in this Department, please call the Town on 9158 9300. The Town looks forward to working closely with companies to develop quality projects in a timely manner.  

If you would like more information, or are visiting the Town and would like a tour of the potential development opportunities, please contact the Mayor Kelly Howlett on telephone (08) 9158 9311 or Mobile 0439 941 431.  The Mayor is willing to show you and/or representatives of your organisation the numerous opportunities for quality development proposals that exist.
