There are two proposed business and enterprise parks at Aura, accommodating over 600,000m2 of space for industrial, office and bulky goods retail uses.

NORTHERN BUSINESS AND ENTERPRISE PARK

The proposed future Northern Business and Enterprise Park is located immediately to the west of the Bells Creek Arterial and north of Bells Creek North and the City Centre. It will be developed as a major, regional-scale industrial and business hub, positioned to attract and deliver a range of employment uses and will accommodate over 410,000m2 of industry and commercial floor space and 40,000mof high exposure retail showroom floor space including:

  • large-scale manufacturing, processing and service industries in the western and northern parts of the park;
  • large format retailing (bulky goods) predominately within the showroom land use area in the south-east corner of the park on Bells Creek Arterial; and 
  • higher value business office and commercial and health-related uses which promote knowledge creation and entrepreneurial activity in industry, science, technology and research and development.

Uses that promote knowledge creation and entrepreneurial activity in industry, science and technology and research and development will be encouraged. Development adjoining the Bells Creek Arterial is to achieve a high standard of design quality and is to incorporate sub-tropical design principles in recognition of its gateway location. Business and industry uses within 250 metres of the residential land uses to the east of the Bells Creek Arterial are to be designed to mitigate noise, odour and lighting impacts of their operation to protect the residential amenity of this area.

WESTERN BUSINESS AND ENTERPRISE PARK

Like the Northern Business and Enterprise Park, the proposed Western Park will be developed as an industrial and business area. It is intended that this business and enterprise park will be developed not to impact on the amenity of the adjoining residential and environmental zones to the east and south and include the following end users:

  • logistics, transportation, warehousing, manufacturing, processing and service industries;
  • large format retailing (bulky goods) consolidated within the Showroom Land Use Area; and
  • higher value business and commercial and health related uses that promote knowledge creation and entrepreneurial activity in industry, science and technology and research and development.

Development adjoining the future Bruce Highway Interchange will respond to its gateway location by addressing the new east-west road and achieving a high quality built-form standard.
