New Onslow homes for Government workers

Onslow is now a more attractive place to live for Government employees after the completion of 10 new homes under the Government Regional Officers' Housing (GROH) program.

Housing Minister Brendon Grylls announced the completion of the homes today and said it would improve service delivery to the Pilbara town.

"The delivery of essential public services to people in regional and remote Western Australia is a priority of the Liberal National Government," Mr Grylls said.

"Government employees often relocate to live and work in these areas, and having good quality, affordable housing available is crucial to attracting the right people."

The properties are located in LandCorp's Barrarda Estate subdivision and were built at a cost of about $5 million.

State Development Minister Bill Marmion said the housing was funded by the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project, a major liquefied natural gas project 12 kilometres west of Onslow.

"Through its commitments under the State Development Agreement, Wheatstone provided funding to build the homes, which the Housing Authority will own and manage," Mr Marmion said.

"Additional State Government funding of $3 million was used to pay for the land.

"This is a great example of industry working with the Government to deliver positive community outcomes in regional WA."
