Welshpool straddles the municipal boundaries of City of Belmont, City of Canning and the Town of Victoria Park and is acknowledged as one of Perth’s core industrial precincts. Overall the Welshpool Industrial Zone takes up nearly 8.2km2, with nearly 700 businesses providing 13,000 jobs. Most firms are in the manufacturing sector, with a growing share in transport and warehousing. The Perth economy is highly dependent on sea and road transportation and the Welshpool area makes a significant contribution through the network of warehouse and logistics businesses and transport depots. Future strategies and engagement will include collaboration with local government partners and the Westport Port and Environs Strategy that will provide guidance to the Government on the future of the inner and outer harbours.
