A SHARED FOCUS FOR FUTURE GROWTH
To be a ‘best practice’ freight and logistics precinct addressing the region’s predominant role in meeting Western Australia’s growing freight needs for the benefit of local ratepayers, industry and the State overall.
To engage and collaborate with industry, the community and Government, providing leadership, advocacy and support to develop a thriving freight and logistics hub that benefits the region and State overall.
Link WA Foundations
Link WA refers to both the region and the project name of the alliance between the Cities of Belmont, Canning, Kalamunda and Swan. Link WA aims to take a leadership role in the support and promotion in the freight and logistics industry.
The four Councils recognise the opportunities and challenges that exist for the commercial and sustainable growth of the industry; and collectively, understand the significance of the economic and social importance for businesses and the community.
Together, the four Councils have an enviable reputation for investment, growth and development through a proactive, innovative and collaborative approach to governance and community building.
This approach will be fundamental to driving transformational change and investment within the Link WA precinct, future-proofing both the freight and logistics industry and,importantly, the freight and logistics corridor.
The Foundations for a Thriving Community
The four Councils have a long-established history with freight and logistics, pre-dating the 1955 Stephenson Hepburn Plan for Perth, which mapped the established and future form of the Perth metropolitan region and continues to shape the city’s growth today.
Today, the Link WA precinct functions as Western Australia’s key road, rail and air freight and logistics hub for local, regional, national and international freight movements. This provides WA businesses, producers and industries access to national and global markets, supports economic growth and job creation; and to the residents within the region, increases employment opportunities and helps create a thriving community to live in.
