The proposal is to establish a special industrial park at Inkpen Estate, Bakers Hill 80km east of Perth. The park is to cater for the development of industries related to animal products processing such as abattoirs, rendering plants, fellmongeries, tanneries and wool scourers.
Inkpen Estate was identified as the preferred locality based on:
- a 1981 review by the Special Projects Section of the former Town Planning Department that identified the Northam region as a preferred area; and
- the results of a study by the Avon Community Development Foundation which included Inkpen (Bakers Hill) as one of the sites it considered suitable for industrial development for processing agricultural and mineral products.
Note: The project was withdrawn by the proponent on 31 March 1995 before any Ministerial determination had been made.
