There’s no doubt the Nambucca Shire is on the up.

With more people moving here every year, it’s an area ripe for investing in future commercial opportunities.

Commercial development is an important component of the structure of each town and plays a key role in providing goods and services, employment and a cultural focus for the community.

The unemployment rate of the Shire has been consistently falling over the past three years and according to Australian Government Department of Jobs and small business the Nambucca Heads area “Nambucca Valley” unemployment rate is now sitting at 5.1%

The Nambucca Shire Council is continually working towards developing future employment opportunities.

They are currently seeking expressions of interest for commercial land.

There is one block available and it is located adjoining the Nambucca Heads Industrial Estate and near the recently completed Pacific Motorway and Nambucca Heads Interchange.

It is also within 1km from the Nambucca Heads Railway station.

The land, a rectangular block with parking facilities at the front and dual street access, is in total 1.563 ha and has a B7 zoning.

The B7 zone is generally intended for land that primarily accommodates office and light industrial uses, including high technology industries as well as bulky goods and wholesale suppliers.

The zone also permits a range of facilities and services to support the day-to-day needs of workers, such as childcare centres and neighbourhood shops. The options for this site are endless.

It is in a prime location, more so since the improvements to the Pacific Highway have been completed. Now thousands of cars pass by the site every day.

With schools close by, it is very handy for families on the school run to call in.

There were three lots available, but two have already been sold and high-quality buildings to support future growth are being constructed ready for the end of 2019.

There are very few spots available in the industrial area, so this site represents a unique opportunity.

“The council has prepared the land so someone can take it to the next level, and realise its full potential’” says Wayne Lowe, Manager of Business Development for the Nambucca Shire Council.

The new development will be in good company, The Nambucca Heads Industrial Estate is home to an abundance of local suppliers, craftspeople and services.

It is a place where many locally-owned businesses thrive.

Plumbers, smash repairs, mechanics, glass and aluminium supplies and much more can all be found here.
