  • Title slide needs to incorporate:

    Title of conference/event
    Title of presentation
    Date
    Speaker & their position

    Text: Titles are to be in Swiss721 Th BT. Name & Position in Calibri (Body) 18pt
  • The PDC template contains four differently coloured banners and white headings in capital letters, Swiss721 Th BT, 28pt. Headings must remain in the black. Size can be adjusted to suit. If Heading requires more than three lines at 23pt, it is too long.

  • The Gross Regional Product of the Pilbara is estimated to be $32.55 billion.

    When looking at the production value of this, it can be argued that this represents 38% of WA’s Gross State Product, 5.5% of Australia’s GDP and 50% of New
  •  Introduction slide introduces a broad topic. E.G. The Pilbara Cities Vision

    Text on black strip to be Swiss721 Th BT.

    Text in white, Calibri (Body) 24pt. Size can be adjusted according to content.

  •  State Commitment of more than $1.2 billion over four years to implement the Pilbara Cities Vision

    Part of the Royalties for Regions program
  • Housing and Accommodation – pressures on short stay accommodation due to increased number of transient workers. Prices are high and spaces are limited for tourists, limiting the tourism industry in the region

    Land Supply and Release – many constraints exist preventing the quick release of land

    Demand for utilities – limited water available without investment into further infrastructure. Places pressure on the amount of dwellings that can be built

    Infrastructure - use of roads, airports and other community infrastructure has increased to accommodate the large workforces

    Community services – difficult to attract professionals due to high cost of living and lower wages than the resource sector. Infrastructure for health services, police etc has been left behind.

    FIFO workers often exacerbate these issues as they still use community infrastructure and services but are not officially recognised and counted as residents. Worker’s camps compete with residents and businesses for utilities and land and FIFO workers compete for accommodation. They also do not bring families with them who would enhance the community.




  • Data from the Pilbara Development Commission’s housing and land snapshot indicate that the property market is starting to normalise in Karratha and Port Hedland, but Newman still has a qay to go.

  • Economic prospects for the region look strong over the medium term with a continuing pipeline of investment in resource extraction activities, new discoveries of natural gas reserves and new investments in manufacturing and agriculture contributing to an expansion of the economic base of the region.

    Key focus areas:

    Agriculture and Pastoral Industry Development;
    Biofuels and Algae Based industries
    Aquaculture
    Value Adding to resources;
    Engineering Infrastructure Supporting Oil and Gas, Defence and Paramilitary, Housing, Construction and commercial Mining Project Development
    Solar and Renewable Energy Provision and Energy Efficiency;
    Industrial Water Efficiency Measures;
    Information and Communications Technology adoption and
    Tourism including resultant opportunities in building a sustainable visitor economy

    PDC’s focus of economic diversification relates to establishing innovating industries, businesses and services to support this growing sector.

    PHADI – The planned RFR funding is for $12.5 million with future investment potentially in the $100’s of millions based on the Rio Tinto cost of developing their Hinterland Agriculture Project (HAP) at Marandoo worth $150 million
  • Onslow water price quoted form RDA ‘The cost of doing business in the Pilbara’ May 2013.p 30
  • PDC and Authority working collaboratively to increase opportunities in waste management / resource recovery in the Pilbara.
    PDC leading facilitation of solutions with support and expert advice from Authority and staff.
    Potential for private sector investment
    Potential for key stakeholders to work collaboratively for improved outcomes.
    Potential opportunities could be peak waste streams - eg construction waste and tyres, or facilitation of specialist facilities such as a class IV landfill.
