Growing opportunities in Wanneroo

The WA Government is working towards resolving water allocation and land use matters in North Wanneroo.

The North Wanneroo Agriculture and Water Taskforce will meet for the first time on December 8, 2017, bringing together key government and industry stakeholders to consider issues that have held back horticultural development in Carabooda, Nowergup and Neerabup.

Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton will chair the taskforce, with the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development to take lead agency status.

Representatives from the City of Wanneroo, industry groups, the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage, as well as local producers, will be invited to join the taskforce.

The taskforce will consider options for water efficient horticulture, impacts of climate change, ways to support new horticultural development, and creating land and water security to facilitate investment, and will report back to government by June 2018.
