Nine industrial-zoned lots are up for sale in Casino.
The lots are at Reynolds Road in the Richmond Valley Regional Job Precinct. They range in size from 5000 square metres to 5 hectares and were developed by Richmond Valley Council to attract employment-generating industries to the area.
The council has constructed a road and completed the installation of water, sewer and power services.
Part of attracting new industry to the precinct is the cutting of red and green tape with a 30-day target for planning approvals.
General manager Vaughan Macdonald said the council had been looking for opportunities to create more local jobs in the area and was prepared to achieve that through investment and development.
The Reynolds Road project would give council a strong competitive advantage for companies moving to the area, in particular manufacturing businesses, he said.
“By providing the necessary lead-in infrastructure, we can help support emerging industries, as well as local companies looking to expand.”
Mr Macdonald said a lot of residents commute outside the area for work.
“The development of industrial land is yet another important step in building a strong Richmond Valley for the future, where people can expect to find good jobs closer to where they live.”
Interested businesses can submit an expression of interest for the purchase of these lots through Richmond Valley Council’s website. Sales will be offered based on the council’s assessment of economic and job creation benefits to Casino. All expressions of interest will remain confidential.
Terms of sale will be negotiable with Council’s focus being on the timely development of the land, and commencement of business operations.
