Serpentine Jarrahdale boasts a wide range of private businesses and industries. Careful planning has enabled businesses to operate in harmony with residential areas, contributing significantly to the wealth and vibrancy of the Shire and boosting its ability to offer employment opportunities.
The Shire forms the northern part of the Peel Region, which is regarded as the fastest developing region outside of Perth. The area offers many unique opportunities with significant industries already taking advantage of the area including equine, horticulture, agriculture, timber production, brickworks, viticulture and tourism.
The Shire's main competitive advantage for business is its close proximity to the Perth metropolitan area, with businesses able to expect lower commercial property prices. We're also close to the freight ports of Fremantle, Kwinana and Bunbury, as well as the Perth International Airport.
Our business precincts, including our townsites, and industrial areas offer opportunities for businesses to relocate to, or start up in Serpentine Jarrahdale.
Cardup Business Park
The Cardup Business Park Local Structure Plan has been designed to facilitate a wide variety of lot sizes to accommodate various types of general industrial uses. Expected to range in size from 2-5 hectares, it is expected that typical businesses in this area will include warehousing, transport and logistics businesses, and showroom type commercial facilities.
West Mundijong Industrial Area
We are currently working to rezone approximately 440 hectares in West Mundijong from rural to industrial use, with a view to creating up to 880 industrial lots. This development will also include the realignment of the freight rail line, meaning that the area will be even better connected to the services required for effective business operations.
