(7) A new wine bar along the Avon River is coming along very nicely! We should see this up and running in the new year. 

 

 

 

 

(7) Construction of a Cultural centre next to the visitors centre at an estimated cost of $14m.

(8) A. There are 2 major machinery dealers looking to move to Northam or expand their current.

(8) B. Proposed aged facility at the Golf Estate.

(9) Just approved - New Ambulance Depo and training centre at an estimated cost of $3m combined. 

 

In summary,

 

We have been waiting for this activity to become a reality for approx 50 years.

 

It is apparent with the substantial amount of money being spent in the Town that Northam

may realise its potential and become "Avon City" and the central hub for the agricultural

and industrial centre for the central Wheatbelt. 

 

The growth of the region is out lined in an article from the Australian financial review written by Su-Lin Tan.
