Lift-off for Yanchep Beach project

Thursday, 22 November 2012


Recently I had the pleasure of being involved in the official launch of the Yanchep Central Shopping Centre, the first stage of a new community in the north-west corridor of Perth in which ECU will have an education facility.

When completed, the Yanchep Beach Two Rocks project will be home to some 200,000 people, living, working, socialising and studying in an integrated, sustainable new community.

My role today was to represent the University in signing a tri-partite Heads of Agreement signalling a commitment to build an ECU facility in this community. The other signatories were Tokyu Corporation President Mr Hirofumi Nomoto and Yanchep Beach Joint Venture Chairman Mr Ang Koon San.

ECU has already enjoyed a very close and successful five-year relationship with Yanchep Beach Joint Venture. We have collaborated in the areas of health, sports science, IT security, cultural activities and Indigenous scholarships.

The Heads of Agreement signing is the very first step in a longer process to establish this ECU facility and the real work will now begin in terms of filling in the details.

I look forward to updating you about this exciting project as it progresses.
